My five-year-old daughter, Barbara, had disobeyed me and had been sent to her room. After a few minutes, I went in to talk with her about what she had done. Teary-eyed, she asked, “Why do we do wrong things, Mommy?”
“Sometimes the devil tells us to do something wrong,” I replied, “and we listen to him. We need to listen to God instead.”
To which she sobbed, “But God doesn’t talk loud enough!”
