At 5 years old, he gets it. . .

We are not religious here.

Not at all.

Now, please do not confuse religion with loving Jesus.

We believe in the Jesus found in the Bible. That is nothing like "religion" of this day and age.

We have friends we deeply love that are religious folks, pagan, atheist and all in between.

That said, while we rarely attend Church, as what we find within is so unlike the "Church" Jesus told us about and believe serving him is really found outside the modern church, this lovely little boy of ours said to me. . .so recently. . .

"Mommy, I wish I could have died for Jesus, so that he did not have to die on the cross for us. I would have done that for him. He did that for me. You know, Mommy? I would have done that for him."

5 years old.

This is a child who doesn't have a religion pushed on him. He just listens to conversations in passing and watches lives being lived. We simply talk about a savior in our daily life in a natural way.

And he gets it.
