Preach It, Sister!
SO, the other day I find Madison, with open Bible in hand talking to the twins on the back porch. I grabbed my camera and went out. It wasn't quite fire and brimstone but she was certainly making her point. They were listening intently. THEN I heard the sentence that I just couldn't believe. Wilson said "We're not SINNERS!"
What??! Seriously??! This troubles me greatly for 2 reasons...
1. These boys are just as naughty as can be and they know it!
2. From the time they were infants we have told these boys that they have wicked hearts, that they are sinners and how much they need a Savior! Every time they do their naughty things, they get disciplined and hear that speech over and over again. How could he say that?!
What could I do but laugh? They are so funny. We talked about it over dinner. I assured them that they were sinners which made them ask immediately if they were going to hell. We took every opportunity to share the wonderful good news of Jesus. I think they heard...but obviously I am not a very good judge of what is sinking in!
O Lord Jesus - Have merce on my children. Draw them to you!
