So, my daughter asked me this morning over breakfast:
“Dad, I’m wondering, if God loves you because of all of the hair on your head, how does that work if you are bald? I have a bald friend, (names him) and how does God love him if he has no hair?”
A fair question except my brain is still recovering from my morning run so I stare at my coffee and she interprets that as needing more information.
“In Awana, it says in the Bible that God loves all of the hair on our heads..”
“Oh right. Well…” I go on to explain the verse and the idea of metaphors. Her response:
Thankfully, my seminary-trained wife came in for the save. When she explained it, Sophie instantly got it. Go figure.
Oh the joys of explaining things to 6 year olds. #thanksawana
