“YOU’RE ACTING LIKE A CHILD!”

CHILDREN PLAYING DR

How would you feel if someone expressed those words to you? Offended or joyful? Before you answer, let’s take a moment to consider what we, as adults, can learn from children.

As adorable as they are, children clearly lack the more mature qualities usually associated with older ones. However, as Jesus so eloquently illustrated, there are lessons that adults can learn from them. One fascinating quality he focused on was their humility. (Matt. 18:3 & 4) One dictionary definition of humility is: modest opinion of one’s own importance or rank.

In my short story, ONE OF A KIND, Paula
has to learn a hard lesson dealing with this quality.
OOAK
Is it possible in real life, though, to recapture any beautiful qualities associated with childhood that we may have lost? The answer is a resounding yes! because with God all things are possible (Matt. 19:26), and we can trust Him to help us in our earnest efforts to do so.

As always, this is from my heart to yours,

Maxine
