I wonder if I'll still have a job tomorrow.

This morning, at home, this exchange took place:
The Little Man: Daddy, when I grow up, I want to be a sermon.
Me: Really? So what do you think a sermon actually is?
The Little Man: It's a person who tells people about Jesus.
Ah, too true. On so many levels.

But at Church, I did the kids spot up the front. I had some things in a bag: some things kids need, and some they don't. My point was that God gives us what we need. The Little Lady was the last to put her hand in the bag.
Me (in front of Church): What is it?
The Little Lady: It's a kid's Bible.
Me: Is that something a kid like you needs?
The Little Lady (clear into a microphone): Noooooooooooooooo.
Oh dear. I wonder if I'll still have a job tomorrow.

Guess which kid is getting supper tonight!

This reminds me of a talk you did before going on a TC camp using the same idea of things in a bag. Things we do and dont need for camp etc.

Praying you still have a job :)

it's because the Little Lady is not so Little anymore and wants the Grown-up Bible!

Hilarious. If only she had a kids version of "The God Delusion" to pull out instead ;)

For over 10 years I was an addict and needed dual diagnosis rehabilitation when I got the help I needed, I could start living my life again.
