The Meaning of Luke 18: 17

While enjoying our precious two-year-old granddaughter on Easter, I was strongly reminded of the meaning of Luke 18: 17:

"I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it."

Her wholehearted joy at hunting plastic Easter eggs and eating chocolate bunnies...

Her absolute, unquestioning trust in her parents and grandparents...

And... bestill my heart... her sweetness when, for the first time, she folded her little hands and joined her family in prayer before Easter dinner.

At the end of Ron's prayer, she smiled impishly and shouted at the top of her lungs, "AMEN!!!"

Yes, God, I hear you... the faith of a little child!
