Childlike Faith - Day 97

I love children. They have a faith that is amazing. They look up to their mommy and daddy and believe what they have to say. No questions. No asking for evidence. They just accept it as fact.

But as they grow up, they no longer need help. They know it all. They've already seen a frog jump 50x it's body length. They know that ants have 6 legs. They know the moon is a piece of rock. They know it hurts when they fall. They don't need to trust anymore.

Have you become this way with your faith?

I hope not.

"And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. “Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea." - Matthew 18:2-6

Like children we should turn to God our father and have the faith that the little child has and believe his words with both our heart and hands.
