The Childlike

At that time Jesus prayed this prayer: “O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, thank you for hiding these things from those who think themselves wise and clever, and for revealing them to the childlike.”

~ Matthew 11:25 [NLT]

Wisdom can be a blessing, but it can also be a stumbling block. With too much wisdom we begin to rationalize and explain away. This may sound counterintuitive at first, however, without using our heart it’s easy to become cold, impersonal, and use logic to remain justified. Keep a childlike perspective to be willing to learn and be wrong.
