Sharing Jesus...Child-Style

Last night I overheard a conversation between my daughter C and our student.

C:  God made you.
S:  No he didn't.
C:  Yes he did.
S:  No he didn't.
C:  God made everyone.
S:  No
C:  Yes
S:  No
C:  God lives right here (I'm assuming she pointed to her heart).
S:  Why does he live there?
C:  He lives in everyone's heart.
S:  Ahhh (just humouring her now)
C:  God is everywhere.
S:  Is he in Korea?
C:  Yup
S:  So...if I go to Korea I can meet him?

I didn't hear C's response...but it continued...

C:  S....I want you to know God.
S:  Do you like your God? Is he nice?
C:  Yup..and if you are quiet and listen carefully...you can hear his voice.

Then the conversation changed to I Spy.

I was so amazed at what I heard...to hear her confidently sharing what she believes...to hear that she understands what she is being taught...and to hear her desire for others to "know God" too. It was very precious.

That is aewsome. I wish I had confidence like that now as an adult to share my faith so boldly. There are times when our children can teach us.
