The last several months are quite amazing. You could say the verse, “Become like little children” fits perfectly. Happiness and peace have come into my life, reminding me of my early childhood.
Little children have a simplistic and unassuming view of life. The smallest gifts bring an incredible amount of happiness. Joy fills us when becoming like little children, appreciate the simplicity of this gift.
“And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”
- Matthew 18:3 NIV
What kind of things should we do to become like little children?
We should start by trusting God, instead of placing that task on those who may be overwhelmed with such a commitment. Walk with Jesus, and let him by our rock.
Embrace the Holy Spirit inside of us, doing the work of God by helping others with no expectation of anything in return. Happy children are givers who love to see others happy, especially when they can share their joy.
Become inquisitive, and open your heart to new possibilities. Let go of limiting beliefs, and dream of what's possible. Give yourself the opportunity to go beyond what you believe is possible, after all with Christ, anything is possible.
When you pray, thank God for blessings bestowed upon you. Realize your prayers are answered in unique ways, not always how you wish, but in a manner that is right for you.
Pray for others, including those who might not pray for you. Say prayers that warm their hearts, to do good and have good happen in their lives.
Keep things simple and become like little children
And, keep things simple to become like little children, so that you may be welcome in the kingdom of heaven, and enjoy happiness and peace on earth.
