That's the question I asked my 2 year old Wednesday night as we were heading home from church. I LOVED her answer. She said...
"Jesus loves God
and God loves Jesus."
that's it. I was so excited that she understands (even at 2!!) that God and Jesus are connected. Of course, she then continued on with ... "Twinkle, Twinkle loves God and Row, Row Boat loves Jesus...and Mary little lamb loves God and ABEC loves Jesus" My husband looks at me and says, "Now I'm pretty sure there's some deep spiritual application there if we could just decipher it." Hilarious stuff.
My favorite part of the car ride home, though, was when my 8 year old asked my 2 year old if she could tell her about Jesus. Syd (the 2 yr old) yells "YES! but Weesa (that's what she calls her) where's your bible?"
Ricky and I looked at each other with such tremendous pride in our hearts as we realized how much our little baby already knows about Jesus. She knows that Jesus loves God, God loves Jesus, and that the Bible is the story of Jesus. WOW! We were so proud that our 8 year old was so willing, ready and excited to witness to her little sister. WOW!
If only we were all so willing, ready and excited to share the incredible story of Jesus with those that we love. I love it when God uses my kids to teach me a lesson.
