A 5th Grade teacher in a Christian school asked her class to look at TV commercials and see if they could use them to communicate ideas about God.  Here are some examples:

God is like BAYER ASPIRIN.   He works miracles.

God is like a FORD.   He’s got a better idea.

God is like COKE.  He’s the real thing.

God is like HALLMARK CARDS.   He care s enough to send his very best.

God is like TIDE.  He gets out the stains others leave behind.

God is like GENERAL ELECTRIC.  He brings good things to life.

God is like SCOTCH TAPE.  You can’t see him, but you know He is there.
