Today at lunch, this is the conversation I had with my middle child, Avery:
Avery: "Mom, the Bible says to love your enemies as yourself, right?"
Me: "Yes, that's right."
Avery: "Well, Satan is our enemy. Are we supposed to love him?"
Me: "Well, the Bible is really talking about people on Earth who are unkind to us and hurtful. It is easy to love the people who are nice to us and love us. It is much more difficult to love the people who persecute us."
I just love the way she put 2 and 2 together. She does a lot of this deep thinking. I'm glad she still comes to me with her questions. She is also my child that likes to have classical music playing in the background while she plays in her room. I just love her!
