3 Year Old Theology

Emma has been asking a lot of questions about God lately. Some on the silly side like..."does God poop?" and some more thought out questions. Here is a conversation I had in the car with Emma the other day....

Emma: "Mom, is Jesus God?"

Me: "Yes Emma, Jesus is God" (Thinking...please don't ask me to explain the Trinity to you at 3 years old; or at any age for that matter :)

Emma: "Does God sleep?"

Me: "Hmmmm.....I don't know Emma, let's ask Daddy what he thinks when we see him" (Phew...she is just asking random questions)

Emma: "Jesus slept on the boat with his friends. God must sleep"

Me: "Ummmm......"

Looks like Emma in her three years has figured out more than Mommy has.

and Jesus called the little children to come to him...from the mouth of babes. She has some mad deductive reasoning skills:)
