Unless you become a little child you can't be with God, cannot reign with him. Why? It's pretty obvious that God is like a child: open, trusting, innocent, happy, direct, sincere, fundamentally good and pure. So how to become that way? Child implies Father. Be Fathered by God and he will lead you to become simple and unassuming as he is. It is a path of abandoning the twisted, insincere, sophistry and cynicism that comes from bitter unforgiveness, a path of emptying oneself and becoming every moment more true. May our hearts be made new by his sweet Paternity.
