It is not often that I only put up one reading, but this is what is happening today. The question we have to face, as men, is if we believe that Christ is Lord of the earth and that he is in control. That the trials of this time are for our good.
If we get too clever, and doubt, we lose the trust we need in God, we lose an assurance of his love, and we fall into error. This is where being a child trumps all credentials and scores on intelligence tests.None of us are clever enough to understand the mind of God.
Far better we trust him as our father.
15 Now they were bringing even infants to him that he might touch them. And when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them. 16 But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. 17 Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”Luke 18:15-17
