Ugly, but pricey, car sighting turns into teachable moment!

“Why would anyone pay that much for such an UGLY car!” I commented to the kids as we drove along and saw notoriously expensive type of car.

Nephew Daniel quickly responded, “It’s probably luxury on the inside.  Aunt Kara, don’t know you that it’s the inside that counts?!”

Then my daughter playfully chimed in, “Yeah, Mom!  It’s like…Don’t judge a book by its cover!”

Alrighty, if they were going to get all deep with the conversation then I thought would too and claim it as a teachable moment!

“What does the Bible say about our insides versus outsides?” I asked, remembering the topic of “Beauty” in Parenting with Scripture: A Topical Guide for Teachable Moments.

Man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart. 
1 Samuel 16:7b

It turned into a great discussion!

Love making use of those “and when you walk (drive) along the road”  moments as Deuteronomy 6:6-7 exhorts parents to use in the spiritual training of their children!

Keep your eyes open teachable moments during drive time!

Remember, even if you didn’t know a verse off hand,
you can follow up on a teachable moment later at dinner or bedtime
once you’ve had a chance to look it up in Parenting with Scripture: A Topical Guide for Teachable Moments.

Here’s a link and pic from a Forbes article on “10 Most Expensive Cars in 2014.”
This is the Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport Vitesse which starts at a cool 2.5 million.
