Out of the mouth of a 5-year-old

This evening, we were having our family devotions, going through Mark 9. After we read, Dad was discussing different topics about God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. Dad then proceeded to speak to Shea on a different matter, more specifically, if God has the right to take lives, when Sam turned to me and yelled,

"Stephen! So God and Jesus are the same person?!"
Me: "Yes, Sam, that's right."
Sam: "But they have to be kinda different."
Me: "Well, not really, God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit are all actually 3 persons in one. It's kind of hard to understand, I know Sam, but as you get older you'll understand more."
Sam: "So do God and Jesus wear the same clothes?"

The whole family broke out in laughter.
