Theological thoughts.

I teach the six-, seven-, and eight-year-old children at my church.

Lesson: Gratitude

E: Adam, you love soccer. A lot. It's pretty cool that your body can play so well. How can you show Heavenly Father that you're thankful for your body?

A: Well... I could get a plate of cookies and put it on the counter. Then I could leave a note: "Dear Santa, Please give these to God."

E (laughs): That's one way, I guess.

A: Except I don't know if God likes milk. So, if God doesn't like milk, I'll leave a glass of 7-Up.

Have you ever tried cherry 7-up? I always thought it was so gross even though I'd never tried it; then when I did try it, I found it quite excellent.
