What My Three-Year-Old Student Taught Me
Last week, we were talking to our three-year old students at preschool about Adam and Eve. We discussed the fact that God had a rule that Adam and Eve couldn’t eat fruit from the tree of knowledge. Next, we talked about different rules that we have at school and why it’s important to follow them. We did a little role-playing to teach the difference between telling the truth and telling a lie – then we tried to explain why Eve believed the lie that the snake told her . When we were finished telling the Bible story, we showed a short video about it all. As we watched Eve reach for the fruit after being persuaded by the snake to do so, one of our students put his hand on his head and yelled out, “OH MY GOSH! This is going to be a disaster!” Ha. His statement was PERFECT. He looked at Eve as if he wanted to yell “STOP!”
If only WE would react in the same way when we are being tempted, or before we take that first step in the wrong direction because we were deceived. Just think how different life would be.
Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it. Proverbs 4:23
Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death. Romans 8:1-2
