Bible Study Humor from Kids

I have so much fun with the kids when we are learning about the bible. Sometimes we get really in depth answers or just really funny ones unintentionally.  Today I was trying to look into why Ryan's bible study through SOS had a lower grade. When I looked into his answers, this is what I saw...

Ryan was sitting next to me and we both started giggling at how he put "and" as one of the answers.  We looked up Galatians 5:22-23 together and found that the 9 fruits of the spirit are love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.
This one (above) had Ryan and I in tears and laughter!  I explained to Ryan that "the" will probably never be an answer on here.  We couldn't stop cracking up for a long time.  LOL.  The answer is "12."

His answer was "living for a long time" would would probably be true for some people!  The answer was enduring or patience.  Ryan was never offended because we were just in a silly mood and was laughing together.  It's just so cute working with kids sometimes when studying stuff like this.  Tee hee....


The other night we were studying the book Growing with Jesus before bedtime.  I ask my 11 year old if he could look up the scripture Ecclesiastes 12:14.  Chaz gladly flipped through till he found it and we all listened.  This is what we heard....

"God knows everything people do, even the things done in secret.  He knows all the good and all the bad.  He will judge everything people do.  With good reason, the young women love you, my lover."

What?  I asked him to read it again because the ending didn't sound right.  He read it again and the kids started to giggle.  I had to look it up myself because I don't remember the scripture ending that way.  The kids were all laughing and Chaz was turning bright read having to read "the young women love you, my lover" a second time.  I laughed so hard when I realized that since 12:14 is the last scripture in Ecclesiastes, Chaz hadn't realized he started reading into the Song of Solomon (verse 1:4) on the next page.  Somehow he meshed the two books together.  It took us all like 15 minutes to stop laughing.  I had tears running down my face and the kids kept laughing and laughing. Chaz thought it was pretty funny too!

Kids are so stinking cute.
