I wanted to share a sweet and funny conversation I had with the kids in the car today. We listen to a CD in the car called Rain for Roots, rainforroots.com. One of the songs’ lyrics are “God cares for you.” So here is the conversation between G and K:
G: K, why does God care for you?
K: Because he loves us.
G: Why can’t we see Him?
K: Because He is in our hearts and we can’t see inside our body. He is in everyone’s hearts.
this is where I paused the CD and began to explain that Jesus is not in everyone’s hearts. I told the kids we have to invite Jesus into our hearts.
G: Mama, why would you want to bite Jesus? He is nice.
then more explaining about INVITE not bite and what that means.
K: So some people don’t want Jesus in their hearts? Mama, isn’t that sad?
