Things I Want to Remember, Vol. 9

Last night, our Bible story was about God’s promise to Abraham that the Messiah would come from his descendants. The kids asked what “Messiah” meant; I told them it meant Jesus was sent from God, that He was God’s “anointed one” (which is what the word really means). Then they asked what “anointed” meant, so I explained the process of pouring oil over someone’s head to signify God’s choice.

Joshua said, “Oh…like at the end of a football game when the team wins and they take the Gatorade and dump it on the coach’s head!”

Anointed by Gatorade. I like it.
