I dearly love our morning devotions. My children love them, too. Here is an excerpt from this morning:
Me: Let's talk about how to pray. God would love us to make a habit of talking to Him everyday. Can you tell me what a habit is?
Them: Something you do all the time!
It's going well, huh?
Me: I have a habit of talking to God the very first thing when I wake up and then I keep talking to him all day long. How about you all? Do you have a habit of talking to God?
Them: Well, what if you can't think of any good stuff to ask for?
Me: Well, then you can thank Him for good things you already have, or ask Him for help if you need it.
Them:What if God gets into a battle with a big giant that is bigger than God?
Me: Nothing is bigger than our God.
Them: What if the giant stomps on my head?
Me:That would hurt.
Them: What if a monkey jumped on your head?....Yeah, like those cavemen!"
What kind of cavemen? The kind of people that live in areas where there are caves to live in or the silly monkey men you see on TV?
Them: Giggles all around and lots of ooh-ohh-aah-aah's, the silly monkey men!! Like when there were dinasaurs on the land! More giggles...
Me: Well those aren't real. Some people think we came from monkeys. Isn't that silly?
Them: More giggles and monkey noises...
Me: Did God create us as monkeys first?
Me: Who were the 1st people?
Them: Adam and Eve!
Me: Not monkeys?
Them: NO! giggles...
Me: If anyone ever tries to tell you that we evolved from monkeys, even if they are an authority, they are not correct. They think they are, but they just don't know the truth. You know the truth. We find all truth in here, God's word, the bible. If you ever have a question, you will find the answers in here.
Them: Like the answer to a really hard math problem?
Me: Um....let's pray.
