I was having a conversation yesterday with a trusted friend about how Jesus wants us to come to Him as little children.
“I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 18:1-4
If you think about it, children are very open, trusting & innocent.
I said OPEN.
We need not look at what we’ve done, or where we’ve been.
Or who hurt us, or hit us.
Or scarred us with their words & their ways.
Or forced things upon us we didn’t ask for.
That we would have never asked for in a million years.
Children don’t wear scarlet letters, or prison clothes.
Children are filled with joy & playfulness & curiosity.
They. Are. Free.
We are too serious, too dark, too closed off.
We are hardened & bitter & we are bound.
We do not live like we are saved & set free.
God help us – help us today Lord Jesus –
To come to You like little children.
Oh how we need to.
Some for the first time since we were.
Much love y’all & being open to All that God Is,
