Daily Devotions: Refuse to Grow Up – Completely

From More Than a Bucket List

Refuse to Grow Up – Completely

bucketWhen Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me,” He was talking to adults as well as kids. He was telling us to mimic the kids: to fling our hearts open wide and obliterate the boxes we’ve put God in. To embrace faith with wild abandon, be teachable, and trust God as a child would trust a parent. Sound easy enough, right?

What can we learn from kids? To express our ideas boldly, to dream ginormous dreams, to live fully in the moment, to taste crazy foods, to take risks, to be wildly creative and contagiously optimistic, and to trust God wholeheartedly.

Real-Life Challenge: The next time you are around a child or group of younger people, observe, learn, admire, and do what they do.
