You Can Bring It down to Their Level
Rachel and her mother Sarah are having coffee together in Rachel's living room. Rachel takes a sip then sighs.
Sarah: [Looking up from her coffee mug] What's wrong, dear?
Rachel: We're going through the story of Joseph. Talitha's only five. And Caleb's two. We're coming up on the story of Potiphar's wife. Steve and I don't know what to do. What did you and dad do with us?
Sarah: You don't need to do exactly what we did, but you can bring it down to their level.
Rachel: You mean like changing the story so that Potiphar's ask Joseph to steal gold out of her father's safe. And she promises to split it with him so that he can go free.
Sarah: [Leans forward] Good start!
Rachel: [Smiling] And when she catches him in the house, she could plant the note in Joseph's tunic.
Sarah: Maybe the kids can even ask this out.
Rachel: Great idea! I'd have to practice with Caleb as soon as he got home from preschool. [Fumbling around in her purse for her cell phone] I've gotta call Steve. He's gonna love it! Thanks mom.
Sarah: I didn't do much, dear. I just encouraged you to use your God given creative gifts.
