From the Mouths of Babes, Indeed: Hilarious Also Can Be Profound

In at thread at Real Intent, MS Keller shared the following story: 

I remember when my youngest turned 8, and we began to talk baptism. We asked him when he would like to be baptized. (His birthday is in May.)  

He said, “I think. . . . . . November.”

We were a little curious as to what significance that had, but when asked he replied with a cheery smile:

I want to live a little first.” 

Sometimes, children sum up complex things in amazing and insightful ways.  We tend to laugh, but we also ought to pause and contemplate how profound their statements are.
