Theology lesson...


as he chomps on his pb&j, E asks me... (at 5) "mom, the people that love Jesus, when they have babies in their tummies, are their babies belonging to Jesus, too? i mean, when they come out of their moms' tummies, are they Christians?" then he follows with, "mom, if there is anyplace i can live, i wanna live in Heaven, so Jesus can teach me all the time and stuff." thus follows a discussion on age of accountability, longing for eternity... and some think we're "just teaching little kids."

The other day Reagan (6) said she couldn't wait to get to Heaven and that she wanted to go live there right now. I hope to always help instill that love of Heaven with her. I remember growing up thinking I didn't want to go yet b/c what in the world was there to do up there. I wasn't being taught correctly!

oooooooohhhhhhhh, so true! have you read randy alcorn's stuff? how we live like the shadowlands are all that is real...
we should introduce our "littles" to each other and let them challenge us in our faith!
