About halfway around the rink, Sean asked him what he thought (wondering what he thought about skating). Nathan answered, "I have a silly question."
Dad says, "Ok, shoot."
Nathan says, "Did Jesus have Jesus in His heart?"
Ummm....wow, what a deep question. Anyone have a good answer for the 8 year old??
Sean responded with, "Do you have you in your heart? (Nathan nodded yes.) Well, I think everyone has themself in their own heart, so Jesus had Jesus in his heart. It's just important for us to ask Jesus to come into our hearts to join us there."
Nice job, Dad! And seriously, you wonder why we parents of 2E kids look frazzled all the time. We ask our kids about skating and instead of being focused on balance, feet or listening to the music, they are in the midst of a deep theological debate. Phew! Glad Dad was there to take that one.
Hope that gave you a smile for today!
