I don’t really remember how we got on the subject, but Josh and I were talking on the way “home” Saturday evening.
“A bad guy tried to kick me.” The five year old informed me with wide blue eyes.
“Well that’s not nice. He should learn to be kinder to you. We shouldn’t kick people. ” I took the opportunity to instill some wholesome theology on the child.
“No, no, no,” Josh responded, shaking his head, “Bad guys are supposed to do that. That’s their job.”
“Oh.” And that was the only thing I could think of to say. Little Josh had caught me completely off guard.
Guess he was the one to teach the theology that night.
