Wisdom of a child

When our grandson Nathan was about four years old, I was pushing him in the grocery cart in Walmart. We were in the checkout line and Nathan whispered to me if he could ask the teenaged checkout boy if he knew Jesus. Of course I said he could. He and the young man talked for a minute and the fella assured Nathan that he did indeed know Jesus. As we were leaving, Nathan said to me, "A lot of people know about Jesus, but they don't love him." I thought "Who is this little kid?" I've always remembered that. He's now 18 and although he has his faults like all of us, I'm proud he still loves Jesus. Just a late night memory of my boy.

That was quite a profound discussion all of those years ago. He has grown into quite a great bigger version of that adorable little guy.

He was such an energetic funny little kid. On his first day at daycare, the kids were all sitting in a circle with their cups of ice. Nathan ran in, squirmed in between two kids, sat down, and wanted his cup of ice. He's still a wonderful young man, but so introverted now.

@1creekgirl He was showing that other one how to make friends and how to share. Does he aspire to a profession in education?

From the mouth of babes. It is amazing what they absorb at such a young age.

I truly believe we need to fill those little hearts and minds with the truth and love of Jesus while they are young.

That was a very profound statement from a four-year-old

You just never know what's on the minds of kids. That's a great memory of Nathan and it's nice to know that he still loves Jesus. When my granddaughter was about 3 she had an imaginary mouse she named Jesus

That's adorable! It's so important to teach them about Jesus when they're little.
