"I DON'T WANT TO BE A SAINT..."


So the Bible clearly teaches that everyone who has been sanctified and set apart by God is a saint. I read a story earlier this week about a Wisconsin mom who was trying to teach her kids how God sees them. She told them that when they receive Jesus as Savior that He then sees them clean and without sin. Actually, He sees them as saints. So she could call them Saint Sawyer or Saint Mylee or Saint Charlie. She kept this up all week, periodically calling them her little saints. Then, towards the end of the week, the family was going for a ride in the car when one of the one of the sons asked, "Can I be funny for a minute?" This prompted the parent's curiosity so they answered, "Sure." Then the boy proclaimed, "I don't want to be a Saint; I'd rather be a Packer!"
