Faith Like a Child

 

Simple faith is the best faith. Jesus agrees. “Unless you become like the little children…you will never get into the Kingdom of heaven.”[1] Jesus isn’t telling us to be immature, but to be humble.[2]

Humble faith is the richest faith. Think of children you know. They ask “stupid” questions (and lots of them!). They laugh when they are happy, and cry when they hurt. They trust their Father. They pray first and worry last. It sounds like a great way to live. Why do we stop as adults?

Somewhere along the way we learned to care more about someone else’s opinion, instead of the Lord’s. Somebody said laughter was inappropriate, or crying is a sign of weakness. Someone said God can’t be trusted. We decided to worry first and pray last. It sounds like a miserable way to live.

Laugh hard, cry big tears, trust the Lord[3], don’t try to control the things you can’t, and never stop asking for the Lord’s help.

Enjoy your Saturday. God bless.
