We were on our way to church this morning , my husband driving...me up front with him and our 8 year old son was directly behind me in the back seat. I decided to teach him something from the Bible on the way there, so I proceeded to explain to him that I had read in the Bible that children were a blessing from God..and that meant that he and his brother and sisters were all blessings from God to us.
He chimed in from the back seat and asked me what does " Blessing " mean ? I then started explaining to him that a blessing was when God gives us a special gift , like him and his siblings were to us...and then I went on about how when a friend is nice to him at school , that is a blessing. Then I said that our home is a blessing, the foods we have to eat are blessings...".
He interrupts me from the backseat again and says , " I could have understood you , but then you had to keep on going. "
I stopped applying my lipstick, looked at my husband...and we both burst out laughing.
One of my best and worst qualities in that department is explaining...on and on and on. So instead of me teaching him a Bible lesson , God used my 8 year old to teach his Mom one.
Think I'll stop " going on " as much now.
From the mouth of babes...
True love, an 8 year old and his dog
Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them and said, " Assuredlly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. " Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever receives one little child like this in my name receives Me." Matthew 18:3-5
