a couple nights ago, emma learned her first bible lesson.
daniel in the lions’ den
so after we learned about it, i asked her a couple of wrap up questions so she’ll be able to remember it. our conversation went like this (don’t you like these dialogue blogs?):
me: (pointing to daniel) who’s this?
me: what is daniel doing?
me: who wanted to eat daniel?
em: the lion. lion eat his feet.
me: so what did God say to the lion?
by this time, i felt compelled to laugh, but thought it be wiser to correct her first bible lesson since God didn’t in fact tell the lions to eat daniel. that is, my friends, a big fib, and fibbing is quite naughty. so i continued:
me: no, baby, God said, "Lion! DON’T eat daniel."
(you have to be very careful to put the emPHAsus on DON’T and not EAT, as may have been the case when i told the story. you have to know that about kids you see.)
me: so does emma want to pray like daniel?
em: yesh! Read the Bible, Pray Everyday!
me: yes!! you’re right! Daniel prayed everyday!
and that’s how it went…our first mother daughter bible study.
