Cooper has recently learned to say all the books of the Old Testament, which is great for a 6 year old. Yes, there are times when I feel like we’re doing a good job teaching our boys about God, and then there was yesterday. I had just told Cooper I liked his new Bible he got for Easter. (It’s a little white pocket New Testament with the words of Jesus in red letters.)
He said, “I think I’m going to sell my bible in a garage sale.”
“Why would you want to sell it in a garage sale,” I asked him.
“I don’t like white,” he said, “I really wanted a green one with a skull on it.”
Trying to figure out how I can encourage him about his new bible I ask him, “Cooper, do you know why your bible has some of its words in red?”
“I think those are the bad words,” he said.
