God loves children. He even made a way for us to have Eternal life, with His son, Jesus, a BABY.
Children are special. Any parent can tell you how challenging kids can be, but boy, what a blessing too!
Let's all focus on the blessing that our children (and our friends children) are. What can we do so they feel special? Sometimes it is just getting down to their level, looking them in the eye and paying attention to them. I promise that more often than not, you will be the one that feels special. Because you will have had the chance to connect with a special little being that God values so much. The insight of a little child can be simply stunning and so often will make us laugh out loud with their pure, honest and hilariously accurate outlook on life.
In scripture, God even challenges us to be like a Child: to have Faith in Him, like a child. A child (that has shielded from hurt) trusts and expects to be taken care of.
God help us to be like a child.
