Tonight my wife and I (with her taking the lead) were talking to our six-year-old son all about angels, trying to navigate his series of detailed questions:

6yo son: “What can God do that angels can’t do?”

My wife: “Lots of stuff… [she elaborates]… God can do everything….”

6yo son: “So what does he need angels for?”

I: “They’re his helpers.”

6yo son: “They’re like his little elves… his flying elves!”

What do you think?
