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!
