Such a big...

question from such a little girl!

Last night as Shawn was tucking Grace in bed she said
"Daddy, if I'm bad at school and say that I don't believe in Jesus am I going to go to hell?"

Of course Shawn was shocked. Who would expect such a deep question to come form an almost 5 year old?  Not really knowing what to say, he asked her what made her ask that question. As it turns out, an older cousin had told her about a classmate who said they didn't believe in Jesus. We're not sure what other conversation took place after that.

But my question is as parents are we ready to answer those tough questions....even from a 4 year year old? Of course we believe that you should never denounce God and we teach our children about the Lord and to love the Lord....but how do you answer that question and not scare her or confuse her?
