The other day our local Books A Million closed and had a lot of books on sale for 40% off. We have a lot of Bibles for children in our house, but our eldest child is reading well enough I wanted him to have a real Bible of his own. He threw fits when he saw me buy it; he wanted a young childs Bible with pictures instead. A few days later I was talking to him about some verses explaining why things are the way they are today, and also discussing the story of Moses, and I told him since he was so interested he might like reading more for himself. I got him the new Bible and opened the pages to Exodus where we were studying, and gave it to him.
Five minutes later my son looked up at me with his face lit up and he grinned and said “Mom, this is the best book EVER!” and went back to reading. It absorbed him like a video game normally would, and he would run up to me and read verses he found particularly fascinating. It filled me with joy. This child’s heart is so very special!
