Forgive me for neglecting this blog for a while, I am just trying to regroup after a harrowing last several weeks, and with Christmas looming in the corner. I thought it might be appropriate to share this image in time for the holiday season and for many of us looking to celebrate the birth of our one and only Savior:
And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
Jesus Christ gave a perfect example of how one should practice their faith- a child. A child is innocent, carefree, and full of wonder, ready to accept whatever comes their way. Sadly as we get older we lose that childlike innocence, as we are confronted with the grim realities of life; we are forced to take our rose colored glasses off and become self-absorbed, biased, desensitized, as we strive to stay afloat in the volatile environment. Often times we wish for the days when we could be kids again without the worries and fears and insecurities.
Luckily having faith in Christ doesn’t have to be as difficult. As Jesus teaches, it just takes one simple act of childlike acceptance of his Word. And before you know it you can be like a kid again, joyful and full of hope. Something we can really use for this dark age we live in.
