out of the mouths of babes

I was cooking dinner earlier this week, and listening to a song from The Cross-Centred Life. Andrew (2) asked me what the song was about, and I told him it was about Jesus. He said something which astonished me:

We can't see Jesus, Mamma.
But later we will, Mamma.

How do little children know these things? I'm sure I haven't told him this! There's more going on in those little heads than we realise. Just shows it's worth teaching even tiny tots about Jesus.

Out of the mouths of babes.

I know what you mean. They can leave you flabbergasted sometimes, can't they?

My second son, now twelve, blew me away when he was about three. I was reading Psalm 8 aloud to his older brother when he shouted in excitement "That's Jesus!" Good grief, a lot of grownups wouldn't get that!

This is the same boy who, after we had read through Mark's gospel, would say "I command you to make me a vegemite sandwich." Delusions of grandeur perhaps?

That's amazing about your son! Kids are amazing!

The vegemite sandwich story made me laugh.
