Ephesians 5

At VBS a few weeks ago, the pastor was teaching this Bible verse to the students:
"Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God." Ephesians 5:1-2

The pastor discussed what the verse meant and broke it down for the students. He spent a long time talking about what offering and sacrifice meant. Then he asked what fragrant meant. What is a good fragrance? A preschooler answered, "It smells like beer!" (That preschooler was not one of my Lambs.) The pastor had a good chuckle over that one and it took a few minutes for him to get back to the verse.

Lamb 3 was on my lap and Lamb 2 was in his own little world daydreaming during this discussion, but Lamb 1 heard the whole thing. Lamb 1 got such a laugh over this. He couldn't wait to get home and tell Ram what happened. I was impressed that a 6 year old got the joke and remembered it to tell Ram. The other preschoolers including Lamb 2 had no idea what was so funny.
