The righteousness of the scribes and Pharisees?

This morning Anaya came to me clutching her Bible and solemnly announced, "Today is the beginning of my work for God."

"That's wonderful," I enthused. "Jesus can be with you all day long and help you be kind and loving. Then you can be like Jesus."

A couple of minutes later I stopped her midway through a chase-Skyler-down-demanding-a-toy episode. "Anaya, I thought you were going to start today to be like Jesus. Did Jesus chase his brothers demanding toys?"

"You don't understand, Mommy!" she said, exasperated. "I don't mean I want to be like Jesus that way. I just want to sell things for Him."
