Ephesians 6:1

On the way home from school today, I quizzed Megan on her school memory verse for this week. It happens to be one of my favorites, and one that I quote often, so it isn't much work for her to recite it ...

Me: Megan, why don't you say your verse for me?

Megan: Obey your parents

Me: Children obey ...

Megan: Children obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.

Me: Ephesians ...

Megan: Ephesians 6:1

Amanda: That's one of the best verses in the Bible.

Me: You think so? Why?

Amanda: Because it has a promise with it.

Me: And what is that promise?

Amanda: If you obey your parents, you will have a long life.

Me: Yes, there is a verse that says if you honor your mother and father, you will enjoy a long life on the earth (Ephesians 6:2).

Megan: Well I'm gonna' do that, because I want to see you as an old lady!!

Me: And why do you want to see me as an old lady?

Megan: I want to see you poop like a duck.

Why can't I just leave well enough alone?
