Monday Moment

This Monday Moment is inspired by my son David. He is 4 (but constantly thinking about turning 5 in a couple months). He is so cute-- full of funny things to say.

One day last week I was working on memorizing a Bible Verse when David wanted to know what it was all about. I shared it with him and asked him what he thought it meant. The conversation went a little bit like this:

David: "Momma, what are you writing?"
Momma: "I am writing a Bible verse over and over so I can remember it."
David: "What is it?"
Momma: "Set your mind on things above, not earthly things. Colossians 3:2"
Momma: "Do you know what it means?"
David: "Uh... it is like when you are walking down the street getting ready to punch someone and instead of that, you think about it and decide not to do it."

I don't think I will run into that situation myself... but I also won't forget the verse now.

Funny thing is- he's the only of the boys that I am SURE would not hit someone. Saturday, he came running inside screaming in terror because Thomas was going to hit him. I told him (telling on myself here) that it's not good to scream like that and that he needs to make Thomas not want to hit him. He asked me, "You mean hit him back?" and I said, "Yes, if that's what it takes." Then he said, "But Daddy, it isn't nice to hit people!"

There is a point to that somewhere, but, I am in trouble enough as it is, so I stopped the conversation.
