Pastor's Column - Fifth-grade assignment
A fifth-grade teacher in a Christian school asked her students to look at TV commercials to see if they could use them in ways to communicate ideas about God.
God is like…BAYER ASPIRIN; He works miracles.
God is like…a FORD; He’s got a better idea.
God is like…COKE; He’s the real thing.
God is like…HALLMARK CARDS; He cares enough to send His very best.
God is like…TIDE; He gets out stains others leave behind.
God is like…G.E.; He brings good things to life.
God is like…WALMART; He has everything.
God is like…ALKA-SELTZER; try Him, you’ll like Him!
God is like…SCOTCH TAPE; you can’t see Him, but you know He’s there.
God is like…DELTA; He’s ready when you are.
God is like…ALLSTATE; you’re in good hands with Him.
God is like…VO-5 HAIR SPRAY; He holds through all kinds of weather.
God is like…DIAL SOAP; Aren’t you glad you have Him? Don’t you wish everybody did?
God is like…the U.S. POSTAL SERVICE; neither rain nor snow nor sleet will keep Him from his appointed destination.
God is like…CHEVROLET; the heartbeat of America.
God is like…MAXWELL HOUSE; He’s good to the very last drop.
God is like…BOUNTY; He’s the quicker picker-upper, can handle the tough jobs, and He won’t fall apart on you.
