What is it with kids?

17 10 2011

Jesus points to the children who were following him and tells the people, “I tell you the truth, anyone who doesn’t receive the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.” (Luke 18:17)

I don’t know what kind of children you know, but I seem to have missed out on the traditional irradiated, beatific ones with halos. (Some pictures are just too awful to show, but if you can’t resist seeing “wallpaper” of Jesus with children, you can click here.  But you have been warned – they are BAD!)  Kids I know have a zest for life – have energy, enthusiasm, and fun.  They try new things, fail a lot, and try again.  Little ones are dependent on the adults in their lives, they trust them and are unafraid to express their opinions.

I hope that’s the kind of children that Jesus wants his followers to be like.


Confession – I nicked the pic but if you click on it you can see it in its location.
