Since I’ve become a dad, I’ve endeavored to teach my children about God. We will not always be with our kids but giving them an awareness that God is with them is a good start.
The other night, Joaquin, our 3 year old, was watching a video in our room while we were all out in the dining room. Here’s a conversation that went on…
JOAQUIN: “Mom, can you stay with me in the room? I’m a bit scared.”
JENN: “Joaquin, it’s ok. Jesus is with you all the time. He is with you in the room.”
Long pause …
JOAQUIN: “But mom, Jesus told me that you have to be with me in the room.”
How do you respond to that?
