Max Lucado's Devotion: Like a Child Before God and Thirst for His Love

By Max Lucado - UpWords Ministries On February 24, 2014

No child understands the logic of going to bed while there's energy left in the body!  I remember when our daughter, Andrea, was just five. We finally got her to bed.  I went in to give her a final kiss, when she lifted her eyelids and said, "I can't wait until I wake up!" Oh for the attitude of a five-year-old!

Is it any wonder Jesus said we must have the heart of a child before we can enter the kingdom of heaven? He said, "Believe me, unless you change your whole outlook and become like little children you will never enter the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 18:3)." In other words, quit looking at life like an adult.  See it through the eyes of a child.

"I can't wait to wake up," are the words of a child's faith. Andrea could say them because she plays hard, laughs much, and leaves the worries to her father. Let's do the same.
