My co-worker told me this story yesterday. Her children were with her ex-husband for the Easter weekend. Her 4 yr. old daughter told her that the went to church and the only thing they did was "standed up and sitted down". Then her 7 yr old son said to her "Did you know Jesus came back from the dead?" She said "Yes, that's why we have Easter." He said "I didn't know people could come back from the dead" and she answered "Well, only Jesus has come back to life. Eventually everyone will but right now Jesus is the only one who has come back from the dead". He told her "I think that's awfully selfish of Jesus. Everyone has to wait but he only had to be dead for 3 days." She was concerned that he was anxious about his grandpa and cousin who have died and she asked if he was thinking of them and he said "No I'm thinking of myself". I love how he reasons things out in his own little mind.
