Are you excited to be baptized, Raymond?

Yes!

Good! Do you know what it means to take the name of Jesus Christ?

It means trying to do what Jesus wants me to do.

Exactly!

Sometimes I make wrong choices. But I’m trying to do better.

We all make mistakes. But we can repent and try again.

Soon Raymond was baptized!

A few weeks later …

CRACK!

You’re always ruining my stuff!

I’m sorry! I just wanted to look. But I dropped it.

Don’t ever come into my room again!

We can repent and try again.

I’m sorry I yelled. I know you didn’t mean to break it.

I’m so happy I can always try again!
