Toddler Theology

Abby’s morning prayer went like this:

“Dear Lord, please let all the men let Jesus get down off the cross.”

Here’s what I think she was trying to say:

“How great can your relationship with Christ be, if every time you think of Him, you picture Him battered, bruised, and dying. Does that image make you want to worship Him? The miracle isn’t that He died. The miracle is that He lives. Take a moment and remember that He allowed Himself to be nailed to a cross for us. But don’t leave Him there. That isn’t the end of the story. Focus on the miracle of miracles- the resurrection. Please let Jesus get down off the cross.”

At least, that’s what I think she would have said if she hadn’t been distracted by a yellow crayon.
