Being childlike in our faith

Luke 18:17

Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”

I have been thinking today about having a childlike faith.


A childlike faith, destitute of ambition, humble, teachable, not prone to pride.

Possessing complete trust, depend upon God for all our needs.

In childlike manner simply take God at his word, seek his truth with wide eyed curiosity, with affection accept his generosity.

Like a child, receive God’s gifts with openness, honesty and unbridled joy.

And as when a child grows they develop their views, use your intelligence, be alert to do his good work.

A childlike faith, simply trusting in God, believing his word, await our reward.
