When Clint Bokelman’s son Caden was four, Clint was tucking him into bed. Caden looked up at Clint and said, “We can’t see Jesus, can we, Dad?” 
 
Clint said, “Yes we can, look in my eyes.”

They were laying down.  At that point, Caden popped up and leaned up close to Clint’s face, first peering into his right eye, and then his left.  Clint was getting a little uncomfortable with the invasion of his personal space. 

Unprompted, inches away from Clint’s eyes, Caden said, “Dad, I see Jesus.”

Weeks later, Caden returned and looked into Clint’s eyes again. 

“What do you see?”  Clint asked. 

“Dad,” Caden said, “God needs to be bigger in your eyes.” 

Most of the time God probably wants to be bigger in our eyes. How big is he in yours?
