Not exactly Christ centred parenting yet

So the other day I was pushing my three-year old boy on the swings, it’s one of his favourite things, and he started singing about his Saviour’s love. This, I took to be a good thing and decided to delve a little bit deeper.

‘Who’s your Saviour, Noah?’

‘Daddy?’

‘No, try again’

‘Mummy?’

‘No. Who do we read about every night?’

‘Oh, Goliath!’

‘Not quite, try again’

‘Pharaoh!’

‘Again, not quite. Who makes things better?’

‘Oh, Jesus!’

‘Yes, that’s right.’ Sigh.

So the sum total of my instruction so far is that Jesus ranks after Goliath and Pharaoh. Ho hum.

    I like it! But isn’t it great when the penny drops? I remember the time that the 3-year-old son of some friends went with daddy to the edge of the baptistery after a baptismal service, peered into the water and asked, in some confusion, “Where’s the old man?”

    You wait til Sunday School – the only answer he’ll be able to give is Jesus 😉

    When my son was three years old, he was at the supermarket with my wife.  Our pastor walked past, and they had a brief chat.  When they went their separate ways, my son looked at my wife and said “That was God”.  Sigh….
