From The Mouth of Babes


My 11-yr old daughter has learned about two societal norms this week that have really disturbed her. She heard the word abortion and asked what it meant. And she learned about legalized marijuana in some states. When I explained them to her, she had a visceral reaction with a crinkled brow face.

She apparently has been pondering these issues because tonight she asked out of the blue, “Mom, can a Christian not tell anyone they are Christian and run for Governor or President? I don’t mean lie, but just not say anything. And then when they get elected, do a lot of things with other Christians to help our country not be so bad?”

Such a profound statement from a young girl. It says a lot about a lot of things.

  1. Kids are very astute and seem to sometimes know how the world is supposed to work.

    I think this speaks to the fact that God puts a sense of right and wrong on the hearts of all people.

    Great post.

    God bless šŸ™‚

    • I completely agree. Children are so close to our creator in terms of their birth. This world can be harsh and some fall away from their creator far too early in age. And usually by no fault of their own. I too believe there is great wisdom in our youngest children.
      Thank you for the follow and the comment. Have a blessed weekend!
