Ladybug and Bee were fighting over a toy. Ladybug ripped it away from Bee who started crying. They came to me to help them settle their disagreement.
Bee: Mom, Ladybug took that away from me! She’s being so mean! She’s so mean that I’m just going to be mean right back!
Me: Ok, wait. We need to be kind to others even when they are not kind to us. So…….
Tiger interrupts: Yeah Bee! You know, love your enemies!!!!
Ohhh that wasn’t quite the Scripture I was aiming for!
