Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6

One day last summer our six-year-old great grandson, Joshua, came running into the house to have lunch.  He had been to Vacation Bible School at his church.  After the blessing was said he looked at me and said,  “Did you know Jesus died on the cross to save us from our sins?”  The joy in my heart was so great I don’t remember my reply.
