Out of the Mouth of Babes

The boys pointed out that I had made a ‘hole’ in the back of Cayden’s head while giving him a haircut. I said, “Well, I’m not perfect.”

Ethan asked, “Why aren’t you perfect mom?” “Because I’m a sinner.” I responded.
Ethan then said, “That reminds me of the verse in Romans 3:23: For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.”


Today, Cayden watched me swallow three large vitamins. I told him not to ever take this or else he might choke and die. He said, “Then I’ll go up? To heaven?” I said, “Well, how do you go to heaven?” He responded, “By being really good?”

Ethan then said, “Oh, no, no. It doesn’t matter if you’re really good. You can’t go to heaven that way. You have to believe in the Lord Jesus and you will be saved. Acts 16:31.”

Due to another altercation, the kids were reminded of Cain and Abel. Perplexed, Cayden asked, “Why didn’t Abel have a shield so that he could block the blows and maybe if Cain threw a rock at him it would bounce off the shield and hit Cain back?”

Ethan rolled his eyes and told him, “Don’t you know? There was no metal-working before Jubal and Tubal-Cain were born!”


I called the kids to come and pray at night and Cayden jumped into his bed and under the covers. I said, “No, we need to get up.” (We pray sitting or kneeling up, not lying down.) Ethan said, “Yes, that reminds me of a verse. Remember what it says in Leviticus 10:3: “I will be treated as holy” because God is holy.
