WWJD? According to a 5 year old. . .

Molly, age 5: Mom, does Jesus love everyone?

Me: Yes, honey.

M: Even people that smoke, or what about people that kill other people?

Me: Well, honey, Jesus loves everyone, even if they do something wrong. It makes him sad, and he doesn't want them to do that, but he still loves them.

M (perplexed): Really? Even if someone shoots somebody else and even if they smoke?

Me: Yes.

M: Well, what about if they dye their hair?



Apparently 5 year olds have a different understanding of "bad"--
#3--smoking
#2--murder
#1--dye your hair
