We were sitting around the table starting our family devotions; the day’s lesson was to show how David’s bringing the Ark to Jerusalem points forward to Jesus. We were barely getting started reading Leviticus 16:1-9, when our middle daughter, Hannah, piped up:
Jesus died on the cross to pay for our sins. He takes away our sins and gives us his goodness.
That’s one of the many things I love about the gospel. It’s a message filled with so much depth that you can spend a lifetime plumbing its depths, but so simple a 3-year-old can tell it.
Parents, if you’re wondering if God is doing anything through your constant training of your children, take heart: seeds are being sown. Keep sowing, keep watering, keep praying. Trust that God will give them growth.
