Little Humans

A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin - 5 and Ryan - 3. The boys began to argue over who would get the first pancake. Their mother saw the opportunity for a moral lesson.
"If Jesus were sitting here, He would say , 'Let my brother have the first pancake... I can wait.'" Kevin turned to his younger brother and said, "Ryan, you be Jesus!"

This joke reminded me of an incident when my own kids were small. I decided to have an empty chair at the table so that when we said “Come Lord Jesus” we would have a place for Jesus. Unfortunately, the kids decided to fight over who got to sit next to Jesus.
