And all that depressing logic and reasoning and odds just. Go. Away.
Mark 10:13-16 ESV
And they were bringing children to him that he might touch them, and the disciples rebuked them. But when Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” And he took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands on them.
Jesus was talking about the faith it takes to have eternal life. If we're to trust something THAT big to Him in faith like children, how much more so the every day of this temporary world? Our daily trials and temptations and desires?
We're too believe like little kids - that pure, innocent, deep trust that is so beautiful to watc. I see it on the face of my preschooler every day, and every day it reminds me to have faith in my Heavenly Daddy that same way. In my Abba Father, who is, was, and is to come, Who is constant and never changes no matter how much else around me changes.
Are you believing with faith like a child today? Or are you believing more like a stodgy ol' grandpa, who has his knickers in a twist and his suspenders too tight and is stuck believing the lies from the enemy and complaining over the sticky fingers of those little children who believe in the ways he only wishes he could?
It's never too late to change your mind - or your faith.
Let's be kids today. Here, have a sticky lollipop ;)
