Have you ever considered why children can see things more clearly than adults? As adults we allow judgement and our hearts to harden due to sin in our lives or for wrongs that have been done to us. We allow our own human intellect to enter the picture and this restricts the vessels due to the effort of thought without learning how to follow God’s instruction in letting it go.
See a child does not judge but they use their senses to discern between good and evil. Their hearts are open with their vessels full of life while simply recognizing the love that is being shown by the adults. As a child of God matures we are to keep our hearts open with understanding while learning to mature in the Word of God to discern between what is of God and what is not.
Jesus tells us in Matthew 18:3,”And he said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” The warning to us is this,”Always be open with understanding and without judgement. For if we allow our hearts to be hardened then we are restricting the life that is given through the true love of Jesus Christ.”
