Our Gospel reading, this morning, is in Mark chapter 10. Jesus is reminding the Disciples (and us), again, to let the children come to him. That we need the "faith of a child" to "welcome the kingdom of God." Yes, Jesus is reminding us to have the faith, the relationship, but I think the reminder of 'like a child' is also to encourage the learning, growing and questioning that children do to strengthen relationships. They do it automatically and with out thinking about it. They want to!
This got me to wondering if we, as adults, need this reminder from Jesus even more than the Disciples did. We are 'facing our giants' this summer -- is this your 'giant'? Taking "time" to be with God, like a child, to learn, grow and strengthen the relationship WITH God? Is your 'giant' the attitude of how you come to God -- excited to spend time with a friend or 'okay I have 15 minutes so here I come'?
I encourage you, this week, think about both -- your attitude AND your relationship with God. Are you ready to "come as a 'child'"?
