Yesterday we went to my parents church and the kids went to sunday school. they gave an invitation to the kids to receive Jesus and Caleb and Tallie both went up. You’d think we’d be excited about it…turns out Kendra (my wife) was a bit upset that they would do something that huge without letting parents know what was going on. I can see her point, especially if that was the first time kids had made this decision. She had a discussion with them about this. It’s important to take care with these matters of the heart. Both our kids have already received Christ and we talk to him together quite regularly…so in our case i could accept there may be some value in them wanting to do it again in a more public context. but with them being so young i’d want to know how it was handled and what kind of effect “group pressure” may have had. Kendra felt a bit like something precious was taken out of her hands.
when Caleb came back from SS he told Kendra “I sacrificed Jesus.” At least we had a good laugh in the midst of it.
