Faith Like A Child

"Mommy!" Jaela announced from the back seat of the van, "I think I'm beginning to understand part of the Bible!"

"Oh good!" I smiled. "What part exactly are you beginning to understand?"

I could see in the rearview mirror that she was looking out the window, deep in thought. "Well," she said, "you know that part that says 'if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.' I think that means that when you sin it is better to ask God to forgive you than to go to hell!"

(That's Matthew 5:20, just in case you're wondering where she's been reading!)
