Recently, I have been having some interesting spiritual exchanges with my 2 1/2 year old son Joseph. He has asked me questions about God, Jesus and heaven. This has been a good reminder to me of how these things are to be taught in the home and reinforced in the church and Sunday school ministry. Also, it has been a good reminder that Joseph is starting to ask questions and that I must be very careful how things are explained to him, so that I do not lead him into a misunderstanding or a false impression of salvation.
He also saw me writing out our check to the church and he asked more about that. I tried as best as I could to explain it to him. Not sure if it kicked in, but he said that he was going to right a check to God! It may not be what I intended for him to understand, but it is a start!
Praise God for these small opportunities and reminders to continue to pray for our children!
