For the Love of God

Who: Aiden, 4 year old boy

Background and Conversation: Aiden likes to ask us when something is a bad word and if he’s allowed to say it or not. One thing we’re teaching him is not to say “God” because it can be offensive to people who don’t like the Lord’s name used in vain. He attends a religious based preschool, so he’s always asking us questions about God. One day he asked me if he could talk about the love for God. So I said he could. The next thing out of his mouth was “Oh for the love of God!”
