“Dad, what does this mean?”

So, Jackson’s turning 8 this week! He’s a ferocious reader and appears to have a photographic memory, so I’ve proposed a discipleship challenge for he and I this year. We’re going to read through the New Testament together and memorize one verse per week from the Topical Memory System. Harmless enough. We kicked off this week at the beginning in Matthew 1, New Living Translation. He’s reading along to me, pauses, and says, “Dad, what does this mean? – ‘he did not have sexual relations with her until her son was born’ (Matthew 1:25). I think we will continue our pilgrimage in a different translation. It’s hard to see the little guys grow up and start asking harder questions.
