What does God want us to know about him?


▪ What the Bible teaches: “You, whose name is Jehovah, you alone are the Most High over all the earth.”—Psalm 83:18.

Lesson: God is not an impersonal force, but he is a real Person who has a distinctive personal name.

▪ What the Bible teaches: “All hearts Jehovah is searching, and every inclination of the thoughts he is discerning. If you search for him, he will let himself be found by you.”—1 Chronicles 28:9.

Lesson: Jehovah God cares about all of us, including small children. (Psalm 10:14; 146:9) He wants us to learn about him.

▪ What the Bible teaches: “You people must not afflict any . . . fatherless boy. If you should afflict him at all, then if he cries out to me at all, I shall unfailingly hear his outcry.”—Exodus 22:22-24.

Lesson: Jehovah listens to the prayers of even small children. We can talk to God regularly and express our innermost thoughts and feelings to him.

▪ What the Bible teaches: “Again and again they would put God to the test, and they pained even the Holy One of Israel.”—Psalm 78:41.

Lesson: Our speech and actions affect Jehovah’s feelings, so we should think before we speak and act.
