Hall of Fame Induction is “Just like Jesus”

When I tried to explain to my four year-old daughter what the Hall of Fame Induction ceremonies were going to be like, I wasn’t expecting her to preach the Gospel to me.

"Tali, today we’re going to a big field with lots of people – 50,000, 60,000, maybe more. They’ll all be on blankets and in chairs on a big lawn.  It’ll kinda be like a big picnic."

"A big picnic?  Lots of people?  Just like Jesus!" she said with a bright expression on her face.

"It what way, Tali?"

In dramatic storytelling fashion she told me, "There were lots of people, but," now wrinkling her brow and dropping her voice into her grumpy tone, "they only had only five breads and two fish."  Putting her fists sternly on her hips she said in that same grumpy tone, "They didn’t have enough." 

Then returning to her bright, cheerful face and tone she proclaimed to me, "But Jesus broke the bread and fish, and," holding her arms out and hands open in a kind of orans position, "everyone had plenty!"

The Word of the Lord.  Thanks be to God!
