Sharing Pancakes

A friend shared this with me:

A mother was preparing pancakes for her sons, Kevin 5, and Ryan 3. The boys began to argue over who would get the first pancake. Their mother saw the opportunity for a moral lesson. "If Jesus were sitting here, He would say, 'Let my brother have the first pancake, I can wait.'" Kevin turned to his younger brother and said, "Ryan, you be Jesus!"

This is a familiar scenario at our house among the brothers. The boys have learned a song at church this year that I frequently use to try to illustrate the same point this mother did. It is called If the Savior Stood Beside Me.

Great song! I'm still trying to learn it, after being in Primary a few weeks now! I tried to use that same lesson before I was in Primary, but I ended up making no sense, because I didn't know the words to the song! haha
