1 John 4:7

7 Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God.

James 1:20

20 for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God.

In addition to learning and memorizing verses, the little ones (and big ones) have been taught what it means to provoke one another. And provoking is indeed a bad thing. In this context, I think of it as teasing, pushing things too far, not stopping when asked etc.

Merriam Webster

It was 7:15 am on Wednesday morning and Lauren (3) came running down the hall yelling "Mama"!!

She just cracks me up. She's 3 ???!!!
