Through the Eyes of a Child

You were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light.
- Ephesians 5:8
We are all children of God. But we don't usually think of ourselves as actual children. We see ourselves as adult children, but that's not how we are called to live. We are called to live as children, little children, kids.

Children are innocent, trusting, honest. If you tell a child that something is true, they believe you. They love with a passion. They're curious, always asking questions, always wanting to know more. They put their whole self into everything they do. They find joy in the little things. And at night they sleep peacefully, knowing they are loved and protected, looking forward to the next day.

We can live like this too. Believe what Jesus tells you. Love Him with a passion. Stay curious, ask questions about your faith, keep growing. Put maximum effort into everything you do for the Lord. Find joy in the little everyday things. And at night sleep peacefully knowing you are loved and protected.

Pay attention to the children in your life. Watch what they do, how they act, and see what you can learn from them. How can you apply their attitude to your own life today?
