Are we becoming like children?
There’s a great song by Matt Redman called “One Name Alone” that has as part of its lyrics the words la la la la la la la la la la. People sometimes think that such words (?) are nonsensical and out-of-place–particularly in a Christian song. Our worship pastor disagreed. He said that the words made him think of children happily skipping, and skipping joyfully. I have to admit that can I easily picture kids doing just that. Matthew wrote what Jesus said, I tell you the truth, unless you turn from your sins and become like little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven (Matthew 18:3). Little children express joy and happiness far more easily than adults. They recover from the guilt of the things they do wrong quicker and more completely. It is, however, easier to picture than to do.
