Coloring to Conformity

A kid coloring on a wall is so free to explore creativity.  He uses the wall as His canvas, he sees no limits to the proper use of a wall.  He's never heard of conformity and rules he must follow; like:

  1. A wall needs to be plain and white
  2. There must only be a few pictures that have similar themes.
  3. Never let a creative design be free to roam outside of a frame.
  4. ...fill in your preconceived notions of how things should go...
Sometimes if you watch a kid carefully they reveal our Savior to us all so well.  They teach us in their freest moments to "...offer our bodies as living sacrifices holy and pleasing to God- this is our true and proper worship- and to not CONFORM to the patterns of this world..."

Lets be the crayons He uses to color on His walls.  It's His masterpiece.


  1. love it, trav. colorful walls are so much more fun than plain white. :)

  2. Travis, when you were little, you only chose the black crayon to color with, and of course the wall in the hallway ended up with a picture in black crayon:) It kind of worried me that you only colored in black! I'm glad you have discovered the other colors of the rainbow!
