These questions were asked of us today by our 5-year old grandson. How would you answer them?
1. What does a soldier do?
2. Is Memorial Day for Kasmir Pulaski? (Illinois residents will understand this one.)
3. Where is heaven?
4. What kind of punishment did Jesus get?
5. Why can’t I see Him right now?
6. Can I have a blue and green bike?

Remember talking to a group of 5 year olds…Question: Who is your Lord and Savior? Answer: Jesus!
Question: What did He do? Answer: He went to the cross! Question: What did He do with your sins? Answer: He took ’em! Question: What happened to your sins? Answer: They got gone!
Huggs to your grandson!
You’re going to ba a wonderful grandpa!
We tried to answer questions like these as our own kids were growing up, but it was a different dynamic entirely to respond to Gabriel’s questions yesterday. It really bothered him that I couldn’t tell him where heaven is, even though I gave an answer similar to the one you suggested above. I loved the way his very literal mind tried to make sense of something so…other than us. I know God is working in that little guy’s life!
