cross-lent-purple-drape-5Like Little Children by Bob Hamilton

I have often reflected many times on my spiritual life. Especially when I began to feel like I was getting burn out at church by being too busy or feeling unappreciated or all the other reasons that people start backing off from service to the Lord.

I have found through the years that my spiritual life is like that of a child who is not uncertain of God; just uncertain of what He is going to do next in their life. If my certainty is only my beliefs, I develop a sense of self-righteousness, become overly critical, and I am limited by the view that my beliefs are complete and settled like that of the Pharisees during the time of Jesus.

But, when I have the right relationship, like that of a child with God, life is full of spontaneous, joyful uncertainty and expectancy. I choose to be like that of a little child and look forward to all the wonderful experiences my Father brings to my life. I love having a close relationship with God and want to do all I can to do His will. Why? Because He loves me…that’s enough!

Then he said, I tell you the truth, unless you convert and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 18:3
