Let us not grow weary in doing good...

For our breakfast Bible time, I read the kids the parable of the pearl of great price.  Preparing myself for some deep discussion (and perhaps an opportunity to impart some of my vast wisdom to these blessed, blessed children), I asked, "Why do you guys think this man sold everything he had to buy the pearl of great price?"
Amberly:  "He wanted to get a girl."

Nathan:  "Do you think I could count to a million?"

Julia:  "Does Jakey have big lips, medium lips, or small lips?"

Jake: "Who can make food?  A robot?"

Amberly (again): "I don't know, but I think God can make me a princess."

Sigh.  We'll try again tomorrow.
