BLOG: Reclaiming your childlike joy

Several times in Scripture we see Jesus use children as an example to what the Kingdom of heaven is like. I love these examples because it reminds me there are no grown-ups in heaven. To be fair, I don’t know what age we will be in the next life. We could look 15 or 50, but the point I think Jesus often illustrates is that there is a certain childlike trust and innocence that are trademarks of His people. I think this means that...
