Jesus Doesn't Bite
Today I got to have some precious one on one time with my daughter. She sat in my lap, we snuggled, and she talked.
I told her how much I love her, and she said, "Yes mom! Big yaya!" (Translation: big love)
I smiled and said she was right. Then I asked her who could love her more.
"Jesus!" She replied.
Again, I smiled as she gave me her most precious grin. Then she got serious and said, "Jesus love me, huh mom?" I said yes. Then she said, "Jesus would no bite me, huh Mom? Jesus no bite, huh?"
I had to laugh at her sweet, child reasoning. I assured her that I did not believe that Jesus would ever bite her. She smiled and waved her head back and forth with pleasure.
It took me a while to think about how significant her statement was. Not too long ago Emily had a real problem with biting, especially her larger foster brother. We explained to her that if you love someone you do not bite them. Obviously, she made the connection. She realized that if Jesus does love her, then he would never bite her.
How right she is! How I thank God for the reminder. No matter how things may hurt us in this life, Jesus never will. Thank God that Jesus doesn't bite! :)
