Keep A Frog In The Kitchen

frogbd[1]My almost 4 year old has a new fascination with animals. He has been addicted the game Animal Genius on his leapster. He would rather win a new animal than watch a show, which I think is great. Anyway, while we were on a walk today he said to me, “mom, we need to keep a frog in the kitchen.” after asking why, Jack explained “Well, if we keep a frog in the kitchen then when a fly comes in our house the frog will stick his tongue out and eat it so we won’t have flies inside anymore.” Pretty smart, eehh? What a problem solver!! The Lesson: We have got to keep our armor on at all times, so when something comes in our homes or our lives that should not be there we will be ready, notice it for what it is and immediately get rid of it, so we don’t get licked!

Ephesians 6:11-18 “Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.”

  1. I think your almost four year old (can’t believe he’s gonna be four!!!!) already knows how to apply the common sense God gave us when we were born better than most adults do. Somehow, instead of reaching for the thing God has put before us to solve those little criseses that we turn into mountains, Jack knows how to made a decisive move to seek help and NOT try to take out all the flies, one by one, on his own. Way to teach him the word of God, Katy!
