BE A CHILD AGAIN!
The easiness of life.
You are driving and see that back-to-school advertisement, and suddenly, you are 8 years old, snuggling against your mother, begging her not to send you to school tomorrow. You are watching a football match on TV and suddenly, you are 6 again, playing football with the neighborhood kids in the parking lot of the building, kicking an old can around to the shouts of the annoyed neighbor. We want to return, go back to our childhood, our days of innocence. Why? Jesus invited the people to be part of God’s kingdom on earth. However, he said that there is a condition: they have to become children. Perhaps he meant that we should, like children, remember how to enjoy the life we had. Perhaps he meant that we should, like children, be happy with the newness of every day.
