I recently started teaching the two- and three-year-old Bible class on Sunday mornings. It's a small class, with anywhere from one to four little ones there on any particular Sunday. This age group is my favorite one to teach. They are so adorable I can hardly stand it!
A couple weeks ago, I read to them a little picture book about being quiet and listening when someone is praying. Toward the end of the book there was a picture of a little boy, sitting on a small wooden chair, with his head bowed. "What do you think this little boy is doing?" I asked, in hopes that the lesson had made an impact. Victoria was ready with an answer, though not the one I was fishing for. "He's sitting in time-out," she said, with a pouty little look.
