Keeping it real...
Even at the age of 4 or 5 years, our grandkids have amazed us with what they say and the way they think.
I'm thinking of a certain day a few years ago, and one of our granddaughters was riding in the back seat all buckled up, as she and I were heading down the road.
Out of the blue this 4 or 5 year old said...
"God's faithfulness endures forever!"
I was thrilled and quickly chimed in to agree and elaborate, thinking this was a perfect spiritual teaching moment.
Before I could get more than a sentence out, she added...
"And Mimi... I know how to shake my booty!"
There you have it! Those 2 random comments, coming out of the mouth of a small child with very little pause between the statements. The tug of war that begins early and continues until the day we will see Jesus.
And yes, I had to laugh at the time, and it still makes me smile when I think of it...
Isn't this a classic example? On the one hand, she has Godly parents who are investing their lives into these girls, and instructing them daily about Jesus.
And on the other hand, tv, movies, other kids at school, magazines, etc.... are trying to win them over to the system of this world at an accelerated speed.
It's a good thing that we know who is the winner in today's world, and what the final outcome will be. In the meantime, there can't be too many prayers lifted on behalf of all of those that we love.
