Like Children

Matthew 19:13-15


Then little children were being brought to him in order that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples spoke sternly to those who brought them; but Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.” And he laid his hands on them and went on his way.

To me, being childlike in my faith means enjoying the simple things and living in the moment – valuing each day for the small joys it brings. It means smiling and laughing often, and not taking myself too seriously.

  1. I like your definition of being childlike, Angie. 🙂

    For me, being childlike also means being open and trusting. I look at my son and marvel at bigheartedness and ability to love unreservedly. I wish I could love God with that abandon!

  2. sigh … I have ALWAYS loved this passage — it's seriously one of my favorites.

    Being childlike for me, is simple acceptance, and not necessarily asking why, but just going with the flow. Hard to do, but rewarding in the end.

    Thanks so much for joining in!

  3. One of my favorite passages. If we could all be more child like what a wonderful world.There really are no "big deals".

    Love the new picture of Aaron. I hate seeing him so grown up. Now that's a "big deal".
