Minion Monday: Hank Plays the Roman Soldier
In the neighborhood Christmas Pageant, Hank was chosen to play a Roman Soldier. He was so excited about being picked to play the soldier until he read Matthew 2:16, where Herod orders the slaughter of all boys age 2 and under in Bethlehem "and in all the coasts thereof". Then Hank was bummed. He was upset until I explained to him that without that prophesy being fulfilled (Jeremiah 31:15 and if Herod had not ordered that done then Jesus Christ would not have had the proof of His being the Christ child given to save the world. So Hank cheered up and understood that it was all part - a very sad part - of GOD's plan.
Besides, I told him, he was only chosen because he was the only one in the neighborhood with the right helmet!
