SCAN0736This cartoon from the newspaper is a fun reminder that younger kids are literal thinkers – a good thing to remember when we teach them!

This also made me laugh.  One of the teens that was teaching kids in my backyard this summer said that Jesus was reigning in Heaven, which is true, but as soon as he said that I imagined lots of little children trying to picture in their minds how Jesus was “raining.”  Then one child shouted out, “Raining?!”  It was so cute!  And a good reminder to think about how children understand our words.
