A Friday Funny from the home front today….
Recently we bought some Bible stories dramatized on cd. My six-year-old son Jack was listening to them by the hour and I was thrilled. This morning, however, I began to think maybe it wasn’t such a good idea after all.
Jack was bored and when he’s bored he can easily slip into complaining; so, to keep him busy, I told him to go water the flowers for me. A few minutes later I came by to encourage him. He looked up and said (in his woe-is-me voice): “Mom, “Pharoah made the people work hard and why are you making me work hard like that?”
Speaking of hard work, I think we’ve got a lot of that ahead of us to train this boy! But my husband’s up for the challenge: “If he’s going to play that game” Steve told me, “Then let’s read to him what God did to the Israelites when they started complaining.”
Hmmm….I’m sensing a detour in tomorrow morning’s Bible time with Daddy.
Have a great weekend,
Nicole for my mom and sisters
