Are spirits made of air?

God is a spirit and has no body as we do. God bless the minds of the young for they are strong and full of wondering! My seven year old blessing asked me this today. What would your answer have been? Inquiring minds want to know!

We've been shopping for our 7 year old a Bible. Does yours have one? If so, which one, and how did you choose it? Thanks.

P.S. Saw your name in the comment section of Dan B.'s blog.

He does not have a Bible yet, but has been asking for one for several months. When we purchased Bibles for our older two we chose NASB, but I am not sure I will do that for our son. I may just buy the ESV even though it will be more expensive. We started using the ESV this year for family Bible study and I have found that my children understand it better, and the notes are a very valuable resource when stumped on a passage. I have never done the children's Bibles because I always felt they were giving a lighter message, and sometimes not the real one. I also figure that while they might not understand everything now, they are reading the real thing and will memorize the passages they will use as adults. What you learn as a child often stays with you. I would much rather they have the real item in their heads!

Thanks for asking and nice to see you here.
