    This is a good lesson. I’m going to share it with my son (about to turn 8, 2nd grade), and see how much he can understand. When I engage him, he asks a lot of questions. My question to him would be, who are those referred to in Luke 4:18/Isaiah?

    New Victor,

    It’s wonderful that your teaching the Word of God to your young son. Let us know how it goes.

    I will. He is receptive. His 5 year old sister… she tunes out or leaves the room when we read The Bible. Unless it is the short verses under pictures in her children’s bible. It’s a real Bible, but it has maybe 10 pictures with verses.

    He impresses me. He did a project at school, a turkey with feathers representing the important things in life to him. God was the top feather. Me, toys, food, etc, were the other feathers. I asked him why God was on top. “Because God is the most important.” Oh the faith of a child! I can’t take credit for that. Sometimes we just pray The Lord’s Prayer at bedtime. D is more comfortable with “now I lay me down to sleep…” but she listens. If they haven’t driven me nuts, I ask God to show mercy and grace upon my children, and they hear that. I hope they remember it.

    Despite the difficulties we’ve been through in their short lives, being a single dad half the time isn’t what I find hard; rather, it’s the responsibility to be an earthly shepherd. If I end up like Eli, I’ll have been a failure.

    Finally had a chance to go over this with my son tonight. Bedtime is usually a fest of irreverence, and it’s tough to get them calm. I started by asking him who Jesus was. He answered that Jesus is the son of God and also was God. I asked him why God became a man. He said to show us the way and what to do. I asked why Jesus died. He said to save us from our sins. Not bad for 2nd grade. Could be better.

    Reading through the lesson was better with another person, despite D5 distracting us for attention. I particularly liked this as it jumped out at me:

    unbelief only takes hold of what it apprehends with human understanding and the senses. This is a good contrast to things spiritually discerned.

    I also discussed sin in the context of pride and people thinking themselves more important than others and God.
