Just Something Funny...

So, Candace, Jalyn, and I were doing our Family Worship tonight, and after doing Jalyn's section in the "Listen to God" brochure, Candace and I studied something for ourselves off the jw.org site:

Since we involved Jalyn, I asked her about the highlighted question from the subheading below.

Why Work to Resolve Problems?

Researchers have found that the most reliable indicator of how happy a marriage will be is not how often the couple say that they love each other. Sexual compatibility and financial security are not the most important factors either. Instead, the most dependable indicator of marital success is how well husband and wife manage any conflicts that arise.
In addition, Jesus said that when a couple marry, it is not man but God who yokes them together. (Matthew 19:4-6) Therefore, a good marriage honors God. On the other hand, if a husband fails to show love and consideration for his wife, Jehovah God may ignore the man’s prayers. (1 Peter 3:7) If a wife does not respect her husband, she is really disrespecting Jehovah, who appointed the husband as head of the family.​—1 Corinthians 11:3.

So let's see if Jalyn was paying attention...

Me: "So, Jalyn...if daddy treats mommy really bad, what will Jehovah do?
Jalyn: "He'll kill you..."
Jalyn (slowly): "I mean, he'll destroy you..."

I like how she tried to "correct" herself and make it sound nicer by slowly using the word "destroy".
