St Bride's: Soul Thoughts

February 14

"Anyone who does not welcome the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it." (Mark 10: 15)

Jesus here shows his delight in children. He says that their sense of wonder, simplicity, innocence and trust makes them heirs to the kingdom of God. He seemed to understand children well, perhaps because of his own experiences as a child. We can strive to retain those childlike feelings and qualities instead of dismissing them as something to grow out of.

Lord, let the childlike qualities of wonder, simplicity and innocence stay fresh in our hearts, and not be choked by cynicism and worldliness. Amen.
