Adopted into God's Family

E and I were talking about adoption today. After some explanation about what it means to be adopted, I took the opportunity to talk about how God adopts us into his family when we believe in Jesus. I told E the verse in 1 John that goes like this: How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God.

She quickly said to me, "Mom, you can't be God's child."

I explained a little more. Then she said, "Mom, you can't be God's child. You're God's adult."

This girl keeps me laughing!
