Spiritual conversations abound in our home but not usually on my clock. It comes up when I least expect it. Here's an excerpt from today in the car.
Girl Wondertwin: Mom, how many people are in Heaven?
Me: As many as God will allow, I guess.
Boy Wondertwin: Well there are definitely no gardeners in heaven.
Me: What? Why? What's wrong with gardeners?
Boy Wondertwin: Well, they are in jail because they did bad things, they stole things, that's why they can't come to heaven.
Me: BWT, I think you mean robbers.
Remind me to follow up with him on that conversation!
For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast.
