Developing theological acumen takes time.
It is achieved through study, prayer, discernment, and meditation on the Word of God.
It is a lifelong pursuit, a hard-fought diligence one must struggle to attain and maintain.
And as proof that none of us ever fully achieve it, and more importantly, that my five-year-old self certainly hadn’t, I give you . . .
my kindergarten Sunday School lesson.
And lest anyone try to tell you that little children don’t understand the faith, that they can’t comprehend how a pastor is a spiritual father, and, better still, what our heavenly Father does on our behalf, well, um, they do.
Just don’t cite me as your source.
