Our family typically does not do dessert after dinner. Except ain the summer when it’s all about ice cream. But last night, after a good dinner on our screened-in deck, Shawn brought out Hershey Kisses for everyone. Not really dessert, but a great treat in the eyes of our children.
This particular bag of Hershey Kisses are part of their Fall Mix and the wrappers are not just silver, but also black and orange (which looks more gold).
Emaline got a gold kiss and I ended up with silver. Emaline came over to me and said with a smile:
“Gold is worth more than silver.”
Then, with only a moment’s pause, she said:
“It’s okay mommy. It doesn’t matter if you have gold or silver. God loves you the same. God doesn’t care how much money you have. He just loves you.”
A simple Sunday school lesson about favoritism taken from James 2:1-13 stuck with Emaline this week. Her observation was beautiful and much deeper than she realized. Thank you to her Sunday school teachers, who with a simple lesson, instilled a powerful message into my Emaline.
