Kids say the sweetest things

This morning at breakfast I was reading Bible to the boys (don't be too impressed it is only the 2nd time I have done it this week) and read the passage 2 Cor 9:6-15. And in the latter pat of verse 7 it says, " for God loves a cheerful giver."
Later in the morning the boys run into my room arguing over a plastic tiger toy that Asher is holding. And Ben tells Asher, "Asher you need to share that toy with me because remember God says he loves a cheerful giver. So give me that toy Asher."
It made me so gald that he had heard what I was reading and tried to apply it.

awwww, so cute. At least he was listening! Like Andrea said last night, someday those verses will come back to him. He may not understand them now, but they will prove worthwhile someday!
