I listen to the kid's memory work at school, and they have been slogging through Ephesians 4-6.
First and second graders.
I am compiling their mistakes. But so far, Ephesians 6 has been hard to keep a straight face on.
"Children obey your parents in the Lord for this is right. Honor your father and your mother which is the first commandment with promise, that you might last awhile on the earth."
Yep. This kid has the fear of his parents drilled into him!
Then came a shy little girl who isn't the brightest bulb in the batch, but she tries so hard! She's adorable.
This was her version: "Honor your father and your mother......
I helped her, ".....which....."
She scrunched her face this way and that, shrugged, and finally said, "All I can remember is "which leads to debauchery"."
This morning, we had moved on to verse four.
Two kids gave me this version:
"Fathers, do not expire your children but bring them up in the structure of the Lord."
Still, my favorite was the kid who quoted:
"Children, do not exasperate your fathers....."
