It’s fun to view life through the eyes of our 7-year-old grandson. He sees the world with an artist’s eyes. When I read him a book, he’s noticing how the artist drew the pictures. He recently showed me the shapes in his French fries. He held up a short one that tapered down on each end and said, “Look, Little, it’s a car.” Then, pointing first to one end and then to the other end of a long French fry, he said, “Look, Little, it looks like an eraser. You know how they go up like this and down like this. . . ”
I could see them both clearly when he pointed them out to me, but I would have missed them entirely if he hadn’t seen them first and then shared them with me.
We have so much to learn from other people, especially children. If only we would listen, how different things might be.
At that time the disciples came to Jesus and said,
“Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
And He called a child to Himself and set him among them,
and said, “Truly I say to you,
unless you change and become like children,
you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
So whoever will humble himself like this child,
he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”
