I read a proverb to my kids over breakfast. I often do.
I have breakfast with them every morning before going to school for a couple reasons…
- To connect with them
- To set their day off on the right direction – with God’s word.
This morning, I read Proverbs 26:11 , “As a dog returns to its vomit, so a fool repeats his folly.”
Pretty graphic word picture. I asked my kids, Nathan, Janina and Ryan if they knew what it means for a dog to return to its vomit.
Janina says, “it’s when a dog goes back to his ‘suka’ and eats it!”
To this, Ryan answers, “Whoa!!!! Cooooooool!”
I think he missed the point.
