Don't Primary Kids Say the Darnest Things?

John and I have had the honor of teaching the 5 and 6 year-olds in our ward these past few years. We are teaching our third class now and we still love it. Every Sunday presents a new obstacle and usually a good belly-laugh-story. Last Sunday, I had the privilege of teaching about tithing. When I began to teach, I realized that our cute little kids did not understand the one tenth concept. I had mistakenly mentioned that we owed one tenth of our earnings to the Lord, which meant that I needed to somewhat explain myself to wipe away their crinkled forehead expressions. After spending about ten minutes on the math, the children finally began to catch on. So just when I thought I was off the hook for the remainder of the lesson, our bluntest little one raised his hand and asked, "Why should I give God my money? I don't even know God."
