Ten Ways to Become Like Little Children

Posted: September 8, 2014 in Disability Issues

“And he said: ‘Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.'”

This is a little girl from our church serving communion to one of the men. It’s one of my favorite snapshots of God’s grace, goodness, and love. We have much to gain from studying the development and play practices of children and finding moments in our day to remember and practice what God has stated. This isn’t religion. It’s the opposite. It’s learning to “play” in a world of unlimited freedoms while gazing into the eyes of our Papa. 

1. Children are eager to play, learn and discover.

2. They love to help.

3. They see life from a different perspective.

4. They make messes.

5. They unashamedly ask for more.

6. They dream big dreams, tell big tales, and imagine impossible scenarios.

7. They wear mismatched socks, play for hours in the dirt, and track mud in the house.

8. They learn about their friends.

9. They fall down, get back up, and fall down again.

10. They love to mimic and learn through this practice.

This is God’s grace in its sweetest and most precious expression.
