Last night as we sat around the dinner table we began discussing what my husband would teach at Awana tonight. He was tossing around a couple of ideas but had nothing concrete yet. Lilla was listening in so I asked her what she thought Daddy should teach. Here is a little window to the conversation:
Me: Lilla, what do you think Daddy should teach on?
Me: Noah? Well, Noah is a good story but what is the lesson in Noah? (I'm thinking she's going to say something about rainbows or God's faithfulness at this point.)
Lilla: No matter what happens you should always listen to God. Even if your friends make fun of you, you should still do what he says.
Me: We really should.
Lilla: Yes, because you know, everyone was probably laughing that he's building this boat but he kept right on building it. We should do that too, just keep doing what he says.
Michael and I just stared at her for a second, trying to take in what she just said.
Oh, and Michael has a lesson plan.
