Best day ever

Our sweet Hannah (age 3)

We were sitting around the table starting our family devotions; the day’s lesson was to show how David’s bringing the Ark to Jerusalem points forward to Jesus. We were barely getting started reading Leviticus 16:1-9, when our middle daughter, Hannah, piped up:

Jesus died on the cross to pay for our sins. He takes away our sins and gives us his goodness.

That’s one of the many things I love about the gospel. It’s a message filled with so much depth that you can spend a lifetime plumbing its depths, but so simple a 3-year-old can tell it.

Parents, if you’re wondering if God is doing anything through your constant training of your children, take heart: seeds are being sown. Keep sowing, keep watering, keep praying. Trust that God will give them growth.

  1. Aaron – This brought tears to my eyes. As a “step-grandfather” who wants to disciple a 5-year-old, I would appreciate knowing if you use any special materials along with the Bible.

    1. Robert, we love Marty Machowski’s Gospel Story resources. We’ve been using the Long Story Short family devotionals for nearly two years and they’re terrific.
