Last night I was playing with my girls outside and Lillie started talking about the death of a good friend's grandmother. She said that the family was probably sad because we were sad when Uncle Joe died. I agreed.
Lillie - it is really sad when someone dies, even a Christian.
Me - Yes, but if they were a Christian and we are Christians, we will get to see them again.
Lillie - Yeah, but if that person is not a Christian, then it is really sad because we will never get to see them again.
Me - That is right and very sad. That is why it is important to tell people about Jesus.
Lillie - Yes, because we want everyone to go to Heaven.
Wow!! What a way to spend the evening, talking to my child about the importance of our witness!!
