Nothing says fun in the Duggar household quite like reciting a verse from the Bible! Jill Duggar and Derick Dillard shared a video of their oldest son, Israel, 3, reciting Ephesians 6:10-20, but before he could get more than a few words into it, he yelled, “I need a drink!” Hey, we would too, kiddo. Watch the hilarious clip above!
Recently, the toddler’s parents have received backlash online. Earlier this week, his father found himself in hot water after sharing his unwarranted comments about the cast of Lost in Transition. “I really hope this is a series showing the devastation that mental illness causes, rather than presuming that these challenges are simply evidences of an improving society. #optimism,” he wrote on Twitter.
Unfortunately, that wasn’t the only time he’s gone after members of the LGBTQ community. Over the last few months, Derick has taken aim at Jazz Jennings — often referring to her as “him” — and called designers Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent‘s family a “travesty.”

Since then, the former reality star has been out of work, and although Jill recently revealed that he’s gotten a job, fans weren’t so sure she’s telling the truth. “Is he working at Twitter?” one person asked, in regards to his favorite social media platform. Another added, “‘Work’ and an actual job may be two different things at the Dillard house.” A third chimed in, “Haha. ‘Derick was at work. Lol’ that cracks me up!”
If you recall, the 29-year-old was fired in November. At the time, TLC released a statement that read, “We want to let our viewers know that Derick Dillard has not participated in Counting On for months and the network has no plans to feature him in the future. We want to reiterate that Derick’s personal statements do not reflect the views of the network. TLC is proud to share the story of Jazz Jennings and her family and will continue to do so.” Well, no wonder he has time to film these videos now!
