Today's Thoughts: Child-Like Faith
"Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it." Mark 10:15
My sister and I had a good laugh the other day as we shared a conversation she had with her granddaughter. There was a minor problem with her car engine so my sister reached in the glove compartment for the owner's manual. As she was looking through the pages, her granddaughter said, "Mamaw, why are you looking in that book?" To which my sister replied, "Because I want to fix this problem with my car." At that point, little 4 year-old Emma ran into the house and came out with her own book. "Here, Mamaw, this book will tell you how to fix your car." My sister looked at the book and said, "It is your bible, Emma." "Yes, Mamaw, everything you need to know is in this book, even how to fix your car." What great faith!
I wonder how much more would get fixed in our lives if we truly lived out what the Bible teaches us. Little Emma is right when she says that her book has all of the answers. God's Word has the answer for every question we have and for every turn we need to make. The only thing we need to do is to have the faith to believe it and obey.
Pray for that child-like faith today and ask the Lord to plant His Word on your heart and mind. "Study this Book of the Law continually. Meditate on it day and night so you may be sure to obey all that is written in it. Only then will you succeed" (Joshua 1:8).
