In this book, Grace Moyer Frounfelker presents many inspirational illustrations of what adults can learn from the spiritual life of children. She explains from Scripture and practical experience what it means truly to be childlike.
Is a child our teacher? Was Jesus saying this when he drew a child into his arms in that circle of questioning disciples?
What can a little child teach us? We can:
-- Listen! Observe!
-- Marvel at the humility of a little child, honestly accepting dependence on others.
-- Open our minds to the awe and wonder of God's world.
-- Appreciate the child's creativity, the compassion untouched by prejudice.
-- Learn to be childlike, spontaneous, drawing others into community.
-- Recognize the walls behind which we hide, and dare to take off masks of pretended maturity.
Jesus asks us to become as a little child. Are we willing to take that risk? To such as these, the kingdom of heaven belongs!
