This morning at breakfast, I had pretty much decided that I wasn’t going to bother having a Bible discussion. But Bethel asked if I would talk about the kings we talked about “last night” (it takes awhile to understand their lack of time sense). I was surprised and pleased. So I explained how Israel was divided into two countries long ago. We talked a little bit about Asa and Ahab, and I read several portions of Scripture that narrate the story.
David finished his cereal, and I told him he could be excused, but he stayed around, in his low-key manner. At one point, he said, “You’re reading a long time!” and I figured he’d probably get up to go play. I just said, “I am. I like this part, and Bethel and Laurel want to hear it. You can go wash your bowl if you like.” Still he stayed, and I thanked the Lord for the small indicator that He is drawing these children to Himself.
Eventually we all finished eating and reading and talking. It was a good morning.
