Backseat Theology

Getting in the Easter spirit, I thought I’d share my numero-uno favorite contribution to the Dryer Family Archive Of Funny Kid stories.  I posted it last Easter too, but it’s worth pulling out once a year:

A couple of years ago, Adam (then 5) had drawn a poster for a poster contest in Sunday school.  On it, he drew a picture of the earth, and at the top was a picture of Jesus on the cross.  There were tears rolling down Jesus’ face, and big scary nails poking out of His hands.  We listened as he showed it to his brother Stephen in the backseat. 

Stephen asked, "Why is Jesus crying?" 

"Because," Adam answered, "He was hoping the bad guys would use tape."

While we’re on the subject, anyone interested should check out the Easter Blog Carnival over at Homemaking Through the Church Year.  Great blog, and great idea for a carnival!

Y’all have a blessed Easter weekend.  He is risen!

    They said to him, “Do you hear what these children are saying?” Jesus replied, “Yes, I do. Have you never read, ‘From the mouths of little children and infants, you have created praise’?” – Matthew 21:16 (God’s Word version)
    “From the mouths of little children and infants, you have built a fortress against your opponents to silence the enemy and the avenger.” – Psalm 8:2(God’s Word version)

    ROFL – I literally burst out in obnoxious laughter. I had to read it to the other adult in the room, and she cracked up, too.
    Love kids.
