â€¨â€¨”Except ye become as little children, ye cannot enter the kingdom of heaven.” In this saying it is urged that all who seek heaven on earth or in the hereafter should become like little children. In seeking things of the spirit and in our faith, we should try to become childlike. Even as we grow older, the years of seeking can give us the attitude of the trusting child. Not only for its simple trust should we have the childlike spirit, but also for its joy in life, its ready laughter, its lack of criticism, and its desire to share. In Charles Dickensâ€™ story, A Christmas Carol, even old Scrooge changed when he got the child-spirit. â€¨
Prayer for the Day
â€¨â€¨I pray that I may become like a child in faith and hope. I pray that I may, like a child, be friendly and trusting.
