Them People Ain’t So Smart! (Children’s Ministry Moment #10)
I haven’t posted a Children’s Ministry Moment in a while so I thought I would share one of my favorite stories from my own son and his Children’s Ministry Lesson. Several years ago, when Jacob was five or six, I picked him up after church as usual. I asked what they had talked about that day, and he told me they learned about when Saul met Jesus and Jesus renamed him Paul. He explained that Saul was traveling on a road to go somewhere when he met Jesus. He couldn’t quite come up with the name of the place Saul was traveling to. I offered up the Saul was traveling to Damascus.
“That’s right,” he said, “Saul was going to Damascus. They call it that because the people there were stupider than anybody else.”
There you have it – Biblical geography through the eyes of a child!
