Skin on bones!

Now you are most likely, and for good reason, wondering what the title of this post is all about.  They are words of profound insight from our not quite 5 year old.  If at first they don’t hit you, just ponder them for a bit…

Earlier tonight before we put the littles to bed, the younger two were playing with Daddy, and I was practicing some reading with our oldest.  We were reading a simple storybook Bible for toddlers.  He first impressed me with his reading of the word ‘beautiful,’ with no input from me whatsoever, in its description of the garden that God placed Adam & Eve.  I was amazed!  He really is a natural reader.

Then after we read a couple of stories, he was flipping through the book and stopped on a page about the birth of Jesus.  I asked who the baby in the manger was, to which he quickly responded, “Jesus.”  I then had him read the takeaway message at the end, which said, “God sent His Son for me.”  I asked him what that meant, and he promptly replied, “Skin on bones!”

It truly gave me pause, as I had no idea where it came from.  I repeated it aloud to my hubby, who was equally surprised and asked our son where he got that.  And he just shrugged and said something like, “I don’t know. God came with skin on bones to do good.”  And that was all he had to say…

And I am still pondering it in my heart hours after he is asleep in bed.

Postscript: Hubby said there is definitely no antichrist spirit in our house, haha.
