Out of the Mouths of Babes

I received a few jokes from my grandmother today in an email. I really strive to listen to the advice of this woman who successfully raised 3 of her own children and 3 of her husband's children (both were widowed when they married). This one caught my eye especially as I am raising my own children!

A Sunday school teacher was discussing the Ten Commandments with her five and six year olds. After explaining the commandment to 'Honor thy father and thy mother,' she asked, 'Is there a commandment that teaches us how to treat our brothers and sisters?'

Without missing a beat, one little boy answered, 'Thou shall not kill..'

From the mouths of babes!! LOL! Thank you for being the voice of not only reason, but responsibility!
