God picks you from the patch, brings you in and washes all the dirt off, that you may have gotten from the other pumpkins.
He cuts the top off and scoops out all the yucky stuff.
He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, etc.
He carves you a new smiling face (more like scary if you're one of our pumpkins) and puts His light inside of you, to shine for all the world to see.
What a great opportunity to teach our kiddos what it means to have a personal relationship with God through faith in Jesus Christ!
Go here for more information about how to have a personal relationship with Christ and eternal life in Heaven with Him.
