We've been having some interesting theological conversations recently around our house. Drew has asked about heaven, talked more about God, readily recalled some of his Bible memory verses, etc.
I have realized that with a greater aptitude for understanding, we also have greater potential for misunderstandings about the God we serve and how He instructs us to live our lives.
For instance, yesterday morning I explained to Drew that we needed to finish breakfast so we could take the dog for a walk.
Under his breath I heard him mutter something about God. Intrigued, I asked him to speak up.
"God does not say 'TAKE WALKER FOR A WALK' in the Bible!"
(a long pause so that I could regain my composure)
"Yes, but God does say to obey your Mommy and Daddy, so hop to it, Mister!"
