I've Never Heard This One Before

Having five kids of my own, and having taught Sunday School and worked with groups of kids for years, I've often gathered responses from kids about how to show love to others and to show our love for God by the way we act. Their responses are usually the same: share your toys, don't hit your sister...etc. Well, Lily got me yesterday. As we were going through her Awana Cubby lesson I was supposed to prompt her to think of ways to show God's love to others. I provided her a couple of examples and then sat back and gave her a minute to think of one on her own. She paused for a few seconds and then said, "I know! I know how to show them God's love!... Swaller with your mouth closed!" Not a bad idea if you think about it.
