For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotton son, that whosoever shall believeth in him, should not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16

I received such a blessing this morning teaching my Sunday School class which, by the way, one of kids is my own daughter who is 2 1/2. It is the 2 and 3-year-old class. They were so sweet and just soaked up the story I was telling them. The story was about Ruth who followed her mother-in-law Naomi back to Bethlehem after the death of her husband and two sons. Her daughter-in-law Ruth did not want her to take the trip alone. I was explaining to the kids that it was a long trip back to Bethlehem and that they were walking and that I bet that Naomi probably needed to stop and rest and probably got thirsty and hungry along the way. I asked two of the children if they would have helped Naomi get something to drink and they shook their heads and said oh yes they would. Well, I get to my child, who by the way had just been crying for a "cupppie" and my assistant went and got her a cup, and I asked her if she would have helped Naomi get something to drink and she said "NO, she wouldn't." My assistant asked her if she had wanted a "cuppie" would she have helped her and she still said no. Leave it to my child. Then they sang a little song about going to Bethlehem. They just truly blessed my heart today!!
