today's reading: Matthew 19: 13-30
CHILD-LIKEI've been thinking lately about the vast difference between child-like and child-ish.
Don't those two terms set up an immediate picture in your mind/
The Lord Jesus tells us how important it is to be like a child, in other words child-like.
Many times, we are warned against the selfish behavior that could be described as child-ish.
Like a child~ come to Jesus.
Like a child~ obey the commandments without trying to analyze them.
Like a child~ don't be so caught up in your possessions. Hold onto them loosely because Jesus alone should be the true desire of your heart~ over anything this world has to offer.
Like a child~ trust Jesus....
and let it all go................
Be child-like, not child-ish.
