Ok, so how can people not recognize that we are born with a sinful nature. In case you find yourself wondering, just come to our house sometime. Here is one story of evidence from yesterday:
Nicholas crying out of the blue down the hall.
Natalie immediately, “I didn’t push him. He just fell.”
Nicholas running to us crying.
Natalie still saying, “I didn’t push him. I PROMISE!”
Jason asking, “Nicholas, what happened? Did you fall down?”
Nicholas, “Natalie pushed me.”
Jason, “Natalie. Tell me the truth did you push him?”
Natalie, “No.” (sheepishly)
Jason, “Natalie. You need to tell me the truth. Did you push him?”
Natalie, “yes, daddy. I pushed him.”
AMAZING! I mean she lied before we even asked her about it. And she even added the “I PROMISE” bit! WOW!
ps…for those of you reading that don’t know…Natalie is 4 years old.
