Are You Kidding?
re-discovering childlike faith
The disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” He called a child, whom he put among them, and said, “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”
— Matthew 18:1-3
All I really needed to know I learned in kindergarten… or Sunday School?
While the faith and the lessons that we learn as children are just the beginning, the foundation they form lasts our whole lives. Lessons about imagination, kindness, giving thanks, and helping others are true at any age. Why is it that some things seem simpler through the eyes of a child? What can we learn when we look at the stories of the Bible, or of our own lives, through a child-like focus?
Jesus states that unless we become like children, we will never enter the kin-dom of heaven. In this series, we’ll look at Jesus’ parables through the eyes of children, discovering a surprising wisdom in them that adults frequently miss… until we become like children.
