Childlike Faith

Children and adults have different perspectives on things. I think dandelions show this difference. Kids like dandelions. They find them fun to play with, pretty to pick, and nice to wear. Adults do not typically like dandelions. They find dandelions a nuisance and a weed to be removed. I think sometimes it is a shame that adults cannot like dandelions. They have lost that childlike pleasure. Losing childlike pleasure is not the end of the world, but losing childlike faith might be. The difference in views on dandelions just begins to show the differences between adults and children. One of the biggest difference might be their faith. Children have a lot better faith than adults have. We must all have childlike faith. Jesus says in Matthew 18:3-4 “Verily, I say unto you, except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little children, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”
