Out of the Mouths of Babes

Part of the reason I've been slack about posting lately is that I'm pretty busy teaching CCD. I teach fourth grade and kindergarten, so that's twice a week plus prep time and study. Not to mention, my son had bronchitis and we just had the floors replaced in our house. So, yeah ... busy.

Anyway, Wednesday night, I asked my kindergarteners, "What is love?" (Baby don't hurt me, don't hurt me no more ... no, just kidding. It's 11:45 PM and I'm punchy. Forgive me.) We were discussing God's love for us and the love we are called to show one another, and when I asked the question, I was expecting them to say "a good feeling," "when you like someone a lot," or something along those lines.

Instead, one of these precious five year olds thought it over for a minute, and said very seriously: "Sin is the opposite of love."
