Love and the Innocence of a Child
Love And The Innocence Of A Child
Funny how a two-year-old can bring you back to the core reality of life and love. How the innocence of a child can touch us in ways nothing else can. How through the teaching and nurturing process we get responses that touch us to the core. I call that pure love, a boundless love that elevates us and keeps us grounded to the most basic and most rewarding feelings! God is pure Love. So the further we are from God, the further we are from Love! When we love someone so much that we want the very best and would do anything to help make that happen, then we should also recognize that we are not in control.
We should know that we want that child to feel the all-knowing, all loving presence of God! We want that child to have His protection, His mercy, and grace and His pure love! We also need to preserve our own innocence, so we can readily receive God’s, pure love! When God is in the mix, pure love is also and the reason why faith and family need to co-exist!
“Truly I tell you, anyone, who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” Luke 18:17
“He called a little child to him and placed the child among them. And he said: ‘Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.'” Mathew 18:2-4
