I was explaining to my 7 year old not to be worried if we got home and there were police at our home. You see my 5 year old and I walked into our home to find it had been burgled. We’re pretty certain his loud talking and singing scared away the culprits.
However, the police came and then the investigators were coming to fingerprint and gather further evidence.
Meanwhile 2 gentlemen had been caught burglering another nearby home and were in custody. I was explaining to my little ones that we needed to pray for the robbers because they had drug addictions and needed to get help for their problems. They stole the jewelry to sell to buy bad drugs.
Then we prayed that the thieves would get help for their problems and that they would find someone who cared for them and who would show Jesus to them.
After we were done my 7 year old said to me. Mama do you remember when I stole and you made me take it back and say I was sorry and I didn’t want to and I cried. I said yes. She continued saying I was so upset and I asked Jesus into my heart so I wouldn’t feel bad anymore. That’s what we want them to do too, right. I said yes.
I simply can’t say it any better than she did!
