In our family we do not read the fortunes that are tucked inside fortune cookies.  We’ve explained to our kids that only God knows the future and he holds our lives in his hands.  Therefore, we don’t need to read fortunes because in effect they are lies! 

So, last sunday, after church we ate at Panda Express for lunch.  After our six year old daughter was done eating her lunch, she grabbed her fortune cookie, broke it in half, pulled out the fortune and thrust it away from her, saying, “My fortune is a lie!”.

Mission accomplished.
