TO BECOME AS THE LITTLE CHILDREN

To become as the little children.
.
What an interesting and powerful teaching from the Savior.
.
“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 child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”
.
I have a thought on this and by no means am I correct—This is just a thought by ‘Mike.’
.
Having coached little kids, there is one thing they all pretty much have in common… They all want to make the coaches proud and happy. Every one of them tries their best to do their best.
.
The teams I’ve coached the kids are usually around the same age, and are trying their best to learn. Believe it or not, each of them are giving their very best to learn.
.
Now, we as coaches or adults may see it a little different and wonder why ‘Johnny’ seems to be giving a little better effort than ‘Billy.’ This can seem frustrating and we may want them all to give the same effort.
.
As a little kid, they don’t see it like that. They see it as they are doing their best and doing everything they are being asked to do and know how to do.
.
Looking at us, as followers of Christ, we need to realize a similar example. We all learn differently, and we all progress differently.
.
Our Father in Heaven is different than us and how we perceive children. He sees us as His children, and He is coaching us with perfect patience.
.
A child doesn’t really get down on themselves if they have a good coach. They actually get excited when they are told they do good or need to be corrected; however, this has to be done with fairness and understanding.
.
Just like Christ will correct us and judge us fairly. He only asks for us to give Him our best and have joy in the process of it all.
.
Stop getting down on yourself and beating yourself up. Learn to be happy and be kind to yourself when you make a mistake.
.
Humble yourself as the little children, and you will find joy and happiness in this life.
.
Let Christ coach you and Hear Him!
