Seeing the World Through the Eyes of a Child

Recently I was holding my four year old son during singing at the beginning of church. I noticed he had tears in his eyes and I asked him what was wrong. He was staring at the cross and said “Poor Jesus. He didn’t even do anything and they did that to him.” It obviously got me choked up as well and then I thought how much innocence and wonder we adults lose as we get older.

One of my favorite books growing up was [u]Sophie’s World[/u]. This book is about a girl who starts getting letters in her mailbox from an unknown philosopher regarding life and its meaning. At one point in the book, the philosopher comments that if a family were to be eating breakfast at the table and one of the children floated to the ceiling, the adults would probably have a heart attack and the children would most likely laugh. This is because we adults are so set in our minds about what is possible and what isn’t.

So, imagine if we could still be like a child when we look at the cross and realize it for what it is as we stand in awe? Imagine if we could look at a project, a potential business, a potential job, or a major goal with the same sense of wide open possibilities as a child? Maybe we still can . . . Think about this when you are faced with a major task, goal, or hurdle and remember, with God, ALL things are possible! So, let’s go out there and make our dreams a reality!
