The Freedom of Childhood

And Jesus said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”

Matthew 18:3

Children are free from so much.

Unlike adults, their default is play not work, imagination not reality, exploration not explanation, curiosity not cautiousness, and best of all they worry about nothing other than their immediate needs and loved ones.

No thoughts are weighed down by the future or world affairs.

They can swing for an hour with no thought to the things still undone on a task list.

They accept complete dependance on those who care for them without question.

Perhaps these are a few of the reasons Jesus asked us to come to Him as children.

Then we would be free indeed.
