The Salvation Plan According to Daniel

Luke 18:16 But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God.

My kids, all three of them, have always wowed me with the depth of their questions and insights. The latest was “Do animals have souls.” Followed up with “Are there animals in hell?” The former I have also asked, the latter I had never thought of.

Today, Daniel and Natalie were asking what it takes to get to heaven.

Me: Accepting Jesus into your heart.

Daniel: What does that mean?

Me: That you listen to Jesus and allow him to be the leader of everything you do.

Daniel: You know, I was thinking about that the other day while in the bath tub. (Mommy note: Many great thinking is done in the bathroom, I am convinced of that!) Satan thinks that he is leading you miles and miles away from God. But, with God you are always at 0 miles away. You can turn to him at any time.
