I heard about a mom who invited some people to dinner. At the table, she turned to their six-year-old daughter and said, “Would you like to say the blessing?”
“I don’t know what to say,” the girl replied.
“Just say what you hear Mommy say,” her mom encouraged.
The little girl bowed her head and said, “Lord, why on earth did I invite all these people to dinner?”
Oops! Don’t you hate it when that happens? We work so hard to put on a nice face to the world and then our kids innocently expose the real us! Every guest in that room has probably felt the same way before they hosted a dinner party, but no one wants it broadcasted!
I don’t know how the guests responded, but I know how God responds to the ‘real’ us. He loves us, laughs with us, helps us turn our lemons into lemonade and He never, no never, abandons us.
What a relief!
P.S. Be careful what you say around your kids!
