Pastor Granillo: Imaginary Friends

My three-year-old son, Isaac, has an imaginary friend named Zappy. Zappy is well known in our family, and once even took a place at the dinner table. Isaac often tells us about the things Zappy says and does. Sometimes Isaac even blames Zappy for the mischief he gets into. While we don’t tolerate Isaac putting the blame on Zappy, we don’t worry too much about him having an imaginary friend. After all, Isaac is already noticing that Zappy can’t do a lot of the things real people can do.

It happened that when the priests came from the holy place, the cloud filled the house of the LORD, so that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud, for the glory of the LORD filled the house of the LORD. - 1 Kings 8:10-11 NASB
