"Did the innkeeper get any recognition?" Just the latest in a long line of questions from my children. This one from my daughter. Here's the conversation.
What do you mean?
Like, did Mary and Joseph tell him thanks for letting them stay with the animals?
I don't know. The Bible doesn't really say. What do you think?
I think he should have gotten some recognition. I think they should have said thanks.
I think you are right. I bet they did, don't you?
Why do you think they should have said thanks?
Because that's the polite thing to do. That would have been nice.
So What? Be sure to give "recognition" to the people in your life who have blessed you this year. Even if it wasn't what you expected, every one loves a little recognition. Especially for the cool Christmas gifts you received.
Isn't funny how much our kids can teach us?
