You could tell them the old story about the family of tiny mice living inside the grand piano. Their world was filled with gorgeous music that echoed from the dark walls. They had been told that a great Someone—nearby but invisible—provided the music.
One day, a particularly bold mouse brought back news. He had climbed into the “attic” and seen how the music was made. It was nothing but tightly stretched wires! The idea about a Someone, he declared, was a myth. The “music” could be explained by mere science. Through the years, further advances in mouse research brought revelations that there were wooden hammers hitting the wires. The mice decided they were living in a purely mechanical universe. How could they ever have believed in something as silly as an invisible Music Maker?
Meanwhile, the music played on.
Human explanations of God change with the weather, but our God is unchanging. “He never changes or casts a shifting shadow” (James 1:7). His constant presence is like beautiful music. However, we can dissect the tonal structure, or we can become caught up in the melody and be moved to worship. —DiscoverGod.com
