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?
