Conversations with Max and Maggie

(When I got into the van today, Maggie was already sitting in her booster seat, arms crossed and pouting. Before I could even ask what was wrong, Max jumped in to fill me in:)

Max: Maggie's upset because of Obama. She doesn't want to have to pay back all that money to China when she grows up. 

Mom: Maggie, you don't have to worry about that stuff right now. Besides, Maybe Jesus will come back soon. That would be the best anyway. 

Maggie: But mom, what will happen if someone finds out she has a baby growing in her womb and then Jesus comes back right then? 

Mom: Hmmm... I've never thought about that. I'm not sure how that will work. 

Max: Did you know that Jesus hasn't come back yet because there are still more people He wants to become Christians? That's one reason why we need to tell everyone the gospel, because we don't know who He has chosen, and maybe we'll tell them and they will be one step closer. 

Maggie: Woh, Woh, Woh. POINT OF FACT: God wants EVERYONE to be saved. 

(Just your typical minivan conversation on the way to Walmart, right? I seriously never know what these crazy kids are going to bring up... but they seem to specialize in hard theological quandaries.)
