30 Jun Paul and Willy Wonka
AT&T once ran one of their best ever commercials. City streets were filled with children’s art. The background music was Pure Imagination sung by Gene Wilder from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. The words are designed to spur creative thought.
Ephesians 3:20 says, “Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, . . .” I have a feeling Paul and Willy Wonka would so agree with each other.
Unfortunately the older we get the more practical we usually become ending with limited concepts of what God can do with us. Ephesians 2 speaks of God’s plans for our working with Him. I wonder if anyone other than Jesus ever fulfilled God’s Plan “A”. Most of us can only see Plans “B” and “C” in our rearview mirror. I can only imagine that I am working on Plan “Triple Z.” Fortunately for us God never runs out of letters.
God wants little children to come to Him because they can still dream great dreams. They can still imagine.
