Invite or bite?

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?

I love how my beautiful children challenge my faith with their innocence. They teach me how I should love Jesus and others and how my heart should break over lost souls.image image
