When Matthew was in kindergarten his mother got a call from his teacher wanting to meet. When they met, the teacher began explaining how she had all her students make finger puppets that day. They had to give them names, then go around the room introducing themselves and their puppet to one another. As she walked around observing and listening, she noticed something different about Matthew’s introduction. She asked him, “Matthew, what’s your puppet’s name?”
Matthew replied, “John.”
The teacher said, “Doesn’t he have a last name?”
Matthew replied, “Yes, ma’am, it’s 3:16.” That was the first Bible verse his mother introduced to him.
