It is possible for Children at a very young age to learn to think about what would please the Lord. --- Which reminds me of something I heard about my 3-year old granddaughter recently. (Have I mentioned lately that I have 4 brilliant grandchildren?) Morgan’s parents were trying to convince her she could get to sleep without her pacifier. Morgan made several arguments about why she DID need the pacifier. Then she came up with the winning argument when she declared, “JESUS had a paci.”

Of course, her parents burst out laughing. But she looked at them very seriously and said, “When Jesus was a BABY he had a paci!” So you, see, even at 3 years old, Morgan has already learned to think, “What would Jesus do.” Obviously, Jesus would have his paci!

I suspect she’s also learned that one way to win an argument with her parents is to find a way to bring Jesus into it. But that really IS the point. As parents, we need to bring Jesus into our Homes every day in every way.
