As Humble As a Child

I’m having lunch in Chic Fil A (some of you who know me are probably saying; “Yeah. So what else is new.”). I’m watching about three children running back and forth from the table their parents are seated to the play set. I lost count of how many times, but I remember counting at least eight times.

As I watched them I figured out what was going on. They were running back and forth to make sure their parents were okay with what they were doing, to get a refill on the water at the table and rebuilding their security in knowing their parents were still there. Then I thought of this passage:

Matthew 18:4
Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

If we say we’re Christians and have taken up our cross, we would be like the children I am watching.

  1. We would be dependent on the Lord to refill us when we start running low on our needs.
  2. We would be constantly rebuilding or reaffirming our security in our relationship with Jesus.

We should always be like these children by going back and forth to our Savior, in prayer, to make sure everything is alright.
