In a quiet African village, there lived a little girl named Zanele. NIght after night, she buzzed with the same question ” WHO MADE ME?” To help her find the answer, she turns to her seven special friends. She started asking each animal and they said somebody with a different characteristic, like us, would have made you. All the animal’s lions, giraffes, baboons, eagles, Zebra, honeyguides, and elephants were told answers, according to their understanding.
The lion said to Zanele,” It was someone just like me. Someone very powerful and courageous. A bit like a king, I suppose” That’s an interesting reply, thought Zanele.
The giraffe said to Zanele, “It was someone just like me, someone very gentle and extremely kind” That’s an interesting reply, thought Zanele.
The zebra said to Zanele, ” It was someone just like me. someone very special” each one of us is different and no two zebras have the same stripes and you won’t find another one like me!
Puzzled, Zenele asked the elephant and it said “someone like me strong and very wise, someone who will never forget you.” Zenele is confused with her seven different answers, and the elephant said a wise reply: “sometimes there are seven answers to one question, you know”
I love reading this book and it always reminds me to think of our creator. We knew our creator is powerful and can do things for us. But the burden of this world takes over us, and we forget about him. Just like Zanele, we should be reminded often about our creator when we get carried away in worldly things.
Just a reminder to everyone reading this: our creator is powerful, courageous, gentle, kind—makes us laugh, close to us, who sees us and understands us, who leads us to good things, who is wise and who looks us, we are very special. So don’t get disheartened by the world troubles, just pass on your troubles to the most powerful one, and relax.
Next time you see someone who asks what can a creator do, don’t forget to pass on this beautiful message to strengthen that person.
“OUR CREATOR IS ALIVE AND CAN DO MUCH MORE THINGS THAN OUR IMAGINATION”.
Have a good day 🙂
