Family Devotions

Last night as we were trying to have a little family Bible reading time, the kids kept being silly and making jokes.  They were warned that there was a time for laughing and a time for listening, and right now, they should be listening.  Everyone sobered up and got serious.
Our lesson was on Genesis 3, where Adam and Eve have to leave the Garden of Eden because they had sinned.  God clothed them with animal skins to cover their nakedness (of which they were now mindful and ashamed) and sent them out of the garden, never to return.  Justin asked the children, “How is Jesus’ death on the cross like the death of the animals whose skins covered Adam and Eve?”  (We are currently using Long Story Short as our family devotion guide).
Emma and Will both piped up with appropriate responses that Jesus covers our sins like the animal skins covered Adam and Eve’s shame in nakedness, they both were sacrifices, etc.  Jack was silent.
Justin looked at Jack and said, “What do you think about all that, Jack?”
Jack thought for a minute and replied, “I wouldn’t like it.  I wouldn’t like to be naked or to be covered in animal skins.”
I laughed so hard I cried.
So much for serious family devotions.
