The Wrong Lesson

Yesterday the girls and I were reading our devotions.  The chapter happened to be on Jesus when he stayed in the temple after his parents had left Jerusalem.  (Luke 2:41-52)

The end of the chapters asked this:

How can you be more like Jesus as you’re growing up?

My youngest daughter replied:

I can disobey just like he did!

I swallowed and asked: hmmmm??? what do you mean?

When he really wanted to do something, he just did it even though his parents went home and left!

I tried to point out that he hadn’t disobeyed and talk her through her observation, but she would have none of it. She is convinced that she is right.

Yes, devotions with a three year old keep me on my toes.

    I always wondered what kids “heard” when we read that story 🙂 She is a hoot!
