From the Mouths of Babes

Certainly I'm biased, and surely she's tainted from being my daughter...

But this week I was straightening my desk [slightly] and found a Sunday School sheet from my daughter's [6 yrs] class.

On one side:

He knows what I like: a picture of games, a picture of a soccer ball, a picture of skates, a picture of friends, a picture of a jump rope and a picture of painting.

Below is written: chrch [church]

But written on the other side was more exciting to me:

God knows what I don't like: picture of spiders, picture of broccoli, and written: spinich, carit's (carrots) and disaplin (discipline).

Not only is it an endearing little sheet from my daughter, but I think it's pretty profound too. Not only does she think of tangible things she doesn't like, but she's also thinking beyond that. God knows she doesn't like discipline.

All discipline for the moment seems not to be joyful, but sorrowful; yet to those who have been trained by it, afterwards it yields the peaceful fruit of righteousness.--Hebrews 12:11
Please pastor, don't underestimate what your congregation can handle...especially children.

Seeing that she's YOUR daughter, I'm just waiting for the day when the words "dispensashunlizm' or 'premil' appear on one of her Sunday School papers . . . :)
