Tommy’s fourth birthday party—from shrieking, laughing, jumping and even some swimming in the pool to pizza, fresh fruit and cake in the party room—is a success. But it’s what happens after the celebration that I want to tell you about. That’s when Tommy, tucked in for the night, shares his plan for world peace with his mom.
Tommy: Mom, when I grow up I’m going to tell all the bad people that they have to be good.
Lisa: That’s quite the goal!
Tommy: I’m going to tell all the people in all the countries that they have to be nice to their friends and share.
“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.” (Matthew 5:9)
Go for it, Tommy!
