Child-K9 Theology

Tonight, my daughter asked me to tell her a story. When I asked about a topic, the old standby came up. "Tell me a story about me being a princess."

I told her to be a true princess you must be the daughter of a king. When I asked if she knew a true king, she answered, "Jesus is a King."

I then explained that as a daughter of Jesus, she can be a princess.

As my son looks around, wondering why he hasn't been included in the conversation, I jokingly say, "So can Zeke be God's princess too?"

Rachel immediately answers, "No, he'd be a prince."

My son spins around quickly in his chair and declares, "No, I'm God's doggie!"

I didn't have the heart to tell him otherwise.

    I wish my youngest would want to be a doggie...instead he wants to be a girl. He has even prayed to Jesus to make him a girl when he grows up. I couldn't quite go into the details of Leviticus 18 and Romans 1 to a 2 1/2 year old, so I just internalized the anger and went on with my day...

    Dude, in early 21st-century jargon, the word "doggie" or "dog" was frequently used to denote one's "friend" or "companion." Zeke seems to already speak the language of today.

    well, it doesn't take much to be cooler than me.

    i guess it was just a matter of time before he passed me on that scale!
