Be Like Children
“But Jesus called to them and said,Let the little children come to me,and do not stop them;for it is to such as these that the kingdom belongs.Truly I tell you,whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will not enter it”
Soul:But every day I bear the trials and responsibilities of an adult;how can I receive God and his kingdom as a little child would do?
“Be like children.They almost never think about their future,as they have somebody to think of it for them.They are only strong enough when they are with their parent.Therefore you do the same,and you will be at peace.”
“Place the outcome of your desires in the hands of divine providence,and abandon yourself in God’s arms like a child,who,in order to grow,eats what his parent gives him every day,hoping his parent will not leave him without food in proportion to his appetite and necessities”
“To be afraid of being lost while you are in the arms of divine goodness is stranger than fear on the part of a child in its mother’s arms.Get rid of all doubt and anxiety….”
Lord,I cant go back to my childhood,but I can place myself in your ever loving paternal embrace.I do so now.Amen.
