The Heart of a Child
If my heart can become pure and simple like that of a child, I think there probably can be no greater happiness than this. ~Kitaro Nishida~
Consider the joy and wonder with which a child views the world...trusting that all is good...marveling at the beauty in simple things...believing that all things truly are possible...loving unconditionally. Let us all strive to maintain that innocent, trusting, childlike perspective.
Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, and said, "Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me. ~Jesus / Matthew 18:2-5 (NKJV)~ Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. ~Mark 10:15 (KJV)~ For to us a Child is born, to us a Son is given; and the government shall be upon His shoulder, and His name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father [of Eternity], Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and of peace there shall be no end, upon the throne of David and over his kingdom, to establish it and to uphold it with justice and with righteousness from the [latter] time forth, even forevermore. The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this. ~Isaiah 9:6,7 (AMPC)~
