Moments in Mothering

Family Devotional Tonight

KJ: You know how you have to get punished when you do something bad?

Ella: (Gasp!, look of fear)

KJ: Well, Jesus took your punishment and my punishment. And you know how you don't aways obey? Jesus obeyed for you, so it's like you always obeyed and me and mommy always obeyed.

Ella: Why do my mommy and daddy not obey? (said in a voice of complete astonishment)

KJ: Because we're evil. But God forgives us because of Jesus. Isn't that good news?

It is good news indeed. I hope you all had a happy Easter!

  1. Good family-worship-time memory. Ella was so astonished that mommy and daddy "don't obey". I am glad you preserved this dialogue for posterity.
