One night last week while finished up our evening routine — “family bath and family snuggle” (always inseparable) — we ended with a Bible story and prayed for one another. Right after reading the story of Jesus dying on the cross in the Jesus Storybook Bible, our two-and-a-half old daughter asked:
“Mommy, why God haffa die?”
That’s the best question all week. I wanted to put that moment in my pocket and never forget it.
Question: How would you answer that question? (When asked by a toddler, or even an adult.)
Tomorrow I will share what her older brother said, and what we’ve been telling our kids, repeatedly and in different ways.
