MOORE — Four pre-school-age children were sitting around a table coloring. “God’s favorite color is blue,” a little boy said.
“How do you know that?” A girl in piggy tails asked.
“Easy. Just look at the sky — it goes on forever and it’s blue. The ocean is blue and it’s huge, too. A blue jay is blue and so beautiful. So God’s favorite color must be blue.”
“I think God’s favorite color is pink,” another little girl said. “Every rainbow has pink in it and when the sun sets every night and rises every morning, God puts pink in the sky to let us know that’s His favorite color. Besides, my Mom said she just knew God’s favorite color was pink when Daddy gave her some pink roses. She looked at them and smiled and said these came right down from heaven.”
“Well, I happen to think God’s favorite color is green,” a little boy said as he colored the grass in his coloring book green. “God made different colors of green, light green; dark green, mint green, even the Evergreen tree so we would know it would last forever. Trees, leaves, grass and even some water is green. So I think God’s favorite color is green. To prove his point, the little boy used every color green in his crayon box on his picture.
“I know God’s favorite color is yellow,” a small quiet girl with golden yellow hair announced. They all looked at her picture and everything on her page was colored in the same color: yellow.
“Well, we know your favorite color is yellow, but why do you think that’s God’s favorite color?” someone asked.
“That’s easy. The sun is yellow; buttercups are yellow, and just like pink, yellow is in every rainbow. Besides that, God made my new puppy yellow, so His favorite color is yellow.”
