Preach it, sister!

Emmer-bean has been "preaching it" lately.  She loves to carry her little green Gideon Bible around...and use it to boss her brother. *ahem*

Yesterday, while I was raking leaves I overheard her saying, "Now Calub, you see right here *pointing* says YOU SHOULD HELP MOME WITH THE RAKING."

"But I don't wanna wake the weaves!!" says Calubby

She sighs..."Oh, well...*sigh* then I guess you just aren't doing what the Bible says...and Calub...this is GOD'S WORD!"

I did have a good talk with her later....that it is important to do what the Bible tells us...and it's good to tell people what the Bible says...
BUT we need to make sure that we know what the Bible really says.  It is God's Word and we don't want to tell someone something about it that isn't true.

And, raking isn't in the Bible.  It does say,

"Children obey your parents, for this is right." *point* HERE....Eph. 6:1

and it does say, "Be kind one to another."  *point* HERE...Eph. 4:32

I had to stick with the New Testament...that's all that's in her little green Bible.
