The Child-Spirit – God Calling 07/02

Does the way seem a stony one?  Not one stone can impede your progress. Courage.  Face the future, but face it only with a brave and happy heart.  Do not seek to see it.  YOU are robbing Faith of her sublime sweetness if you do this.

Just know that all is well and that Faith, not seeing, but believing, is the barque that will bear you to safety, over the stormy waters. “According to your faith be it unto you” was My injunction to those who sought healing of Me.

If for wonder-working, if for healing, if for salvation faith was so necessary then the reason is clear why I urged that all who sought entrance to My Kingdom must become as little children.  Faith is the child-attitude.

Seek in every way to become child-like. Seek, seek, seek until you find, until the years have added to your nature that of the trusting child.  Not only for its simple trust must you copy the child-spirit, but for its joy in life, it’s ready laughter, its lack of criticism, its desire to share all with all men.  Ask much that you may become as little children, friendly and loving towards all — not critical, not fearful. 

“Except ye…become as little children ye cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven.”

And Jesus called a little child unto him…And said… Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall  not enter into the kingdom of heaven.  Matthew 18:2,3
