Lessons from a child

An evening and a day with my niece’s 2-year old son, Caiden…exhausting, but rewarding. We learned from each other – I was reminded to relax and just have fun. He learned how to put train tracks together and a new game called, “Who can keep their eyes closed the longest?”  This game was employed at Caiden’s naptime.

Children – what a joy! They have so much energy and no hidden agenda. How refreshing in this day and age.

“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them” (Mark 10:14–16).
