Two weeks ago we had our family devotion and our topic was about the fast pace world. It says there that the first thing we must to is to list down the must do, should do, and can do. I asked God for wisdom on how to explain this things to my son, Z's level since he is just 4 years old.
So, I asked Z , " When you wake up in the morning what must you do? Must do are the things you can't compromise." Then, he answered "pray." I asked " How about the should do?" He answered "Watching cartoons on DVD." Then I asked again " Is watching cartoons important?" So, he quickly answered "should do is "study." Then I asked "How about the things we can do?" "watching cartoons on DVD' quickly came his reply.
After that topic for our devotion, now Z knows what to do when he wakes up in the morning. Lately, he has been reading his own bible. I was praying to buy a bible for him that he could read it himself. Thank God! I found one at National Book Store which was in fact so cheap, it only cost P165.00. It is entitled "My first Bible Treasury" and Z likes the pictures on it too. It contains basic essential bible history and includes stories: Adam and Eve, God the beginning, Samson and Delilah, Noah's Ark, Jesus, Salvation, interesting facts, prayers, etc.
Now, when he wakes up instead of begging me to watch cartoons since his classes is in the afternoon. He now ask, "Mom May, can I read now my bible?" He reads his bible in the morning and before bed time.
For that it made me a happy Mom.Hope his eagerness to learn more about God will continue forever even when I'm gone.
