As long as we live we continue to learn and grow. Some of us are still learning to use a phone for more than just ‘talking to someone’. (they have even replaced computers in many lives)….. As far as faith is concerned we must continue to COME to the Heavenly Father as a little child…….(for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven) but we are also told to GROW.
2 Peter 3:18 GROW in the Grace and Knowledge of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
The prophet Isaiah recorded 11.6……A little child shall lead them…….An age to come when wild animals will be gentled.
Today, my heart is surging with the two dynamics of our lives. We are told we are to continue to LEARN…..ie keep mentally alert to cope with modern life.
but…….in the KINGDOM OF GOD……we are to ever come to Father as a little child……but never stay static but to ever GROW, GROW, GROW………to let all the ravages of time and life be lived to the fullest but in the midst of it all to be changed, constantly changed to be more and more like HIM.
All of this is beyond comprehension, so that is the TRUTH behind the child-like relationship. Maybe we will get to know lots of ‘stuff’ while still breathing…
but. and this is perhaps our greatest JOY. As long as we live we can continue……as a little child to find we can never, with all our striving, ever truly KNOW Him. Relationship makes this such an exciting journey……day by day as a child simply trusting and letting Him lead and guide.
Why is this sometimes hard? Perhaps its because we’ve become programmed for performance and we are to REST, TRUST, GROW.
Blessings and Peace to you.
Excellent Faye 🙂 Grow, grow, grow! Reminding me of the same, “Seek!” I am touched by your thoughts to “grow” and a child. There is SO much for us to learn and grow in we can be joyful as children every day! Blessings as you begin yours and I finish mine here in USA 🙂
Grow in our knowledge of Him – so necessary. So adventurous when we do so. The depth of his being is unending. Grow.
Good thoughts to grow on!
Very good post, thought-provoking!
