The Bible tells me so...

Now Ryan has been reading since the summer before Kindergarten and we gave him his first real Bible a few months ago, but today was a special day. This morning while riding to church, I heard him unzip his Bible cover and rustle a few pages. Then I heard some of the sweetest words that have ever left his lips...

"Genesis......In the beginning, God created the Heaven and the earth"

We do devotionals with him every night, he goes to Sunday School every week, we know he knows the basics. But this was just such a special moment to me. He was reading scripture...all by himself. He began at the very beginning (a very good place to start), he read every word without pause, but not purely from memorization. My eyes began to well up, I put my hand on Bobby's leg. We both smiled knowingly....

He now has the all tools he needs for all life's problems. He does not need anyone else to tell him where to find the answer. He can read for himself the wonders that amazing Book possesses. And he can answer without doubt....Why do you believe?

"Because the Bible tells me so!"
