Just recently, Kenlee’s cat died, and she was distraught. She loved this sweet little cat and started praying for a new cat. Less than a week later, she came home from school, and her Papa and brother had found a cat in the woods by the house. Kenlee was very excited because the cat resembled her cat that she just lost. The first thing that she did was thank Jesus for answering her prayers and bringing her a cat. The prayer challenged me because she said I knew all I needed to do was ask Jesus, and he would help me get a cat. She challenged me yet again. She told everyone she saw about God bringing her a new cat because she was broken-hearted. Jesus talks about being like children and having a childlike faith.
At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me. Matthew 18:1-5
As we grow in age, we often forget about that childlike faith and begin letting the world pressures influence our decisions and faith. We need to go back to putting our trust entirely in God and stop being worried about the world's social repercussions because we boast about God. We should be like a child and tell everyone we see about the great things God had done and continues to do in our life.
