Mrs. Marble, a Sunday School teacher, was telling her students about the time when Lot's wife looked back at Sodom she turned into a pillar of salt.
Little Percy interrupted. “My mommy looked back once while she was driving,” he announced, “and she turned into a telephone pole.”
Our fourth grader celebrated his birthday on crutches, so he couldn’t carry the cupcakes into school without help. I asked our sixth-grader, Noah, to help his brother carry them in.
“I could,” he said, “but I’d prefer not to.”
Spotting a teaching moment, my husband asked Noah, “What would Jesus do?”
Noah answered, “Jesus would heal him so he could carry his own cupcakes.”
