Like a Child

I love my “spiritual talks” with my kids, and this one is the best one yet.

I was doing my usual - asking probing questions about God, the universe, life, death to Shaeylea the other day and it went something like this; “so Shaeylea, how do you know that God exists?” She said, “Well, I wouldn’t be here if He didn’t exist.”

I was like, “okay… alright… good answer… daddy is going to go pray for a while and think on that some more”.

You know what is amazing about that exchange was that it was simple, yet deep. It was, Childlike.

Which reminds me of:

Mark 10:15 “I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”

Where are you and I complicating (adultifying) the whole God thing? I think far too many times we make it difficult, confusing and complicated... when it's really easy, plain and simple!

God is real! How do I know that? Just ask any child, she'll tell ya!
