What They Mean By Child-Like Faith

Written by Eric Engel

Prv:18:2 A Fool Receiveth Not The Words Of Prudence: Unless Thou Say Those Things Which Are In His Heart

So what does that say about us? We all like to be told we’re right. We all like to hear how smart we are. We all want confirmation. Most of us hate it when someone points out when we’re wrong.

If you pick uprepparttar Bible, and don’t come away thinking yourself a fool, you’re not paying attention. Because every book ofrepparttar 149908 Bible is full of passages that show us how foolish we are. The book of proverbs particularly points out our intellectual limitations.

Does God really have a fetish for identifying our flaws? Like a father who can never admit his son turned out all right? Yes and no. It all hangs on that quote from Christ: “Mk:10:15 Amen I say to you, whosoever shall not receiverepparttar 149909 kingdom of God as a little child shall not enter into it.”

A lot of people misinterpret that to mean learning and understanding our faith is fruitless. They confuserepparttar 149910 word “childlike” for “simplistic”, butrepparttar 149911 two have very different meanings. Anyone who has children realizes that they aren’t simple at all. But what about them are we suppose to imitate?

The Father / Son Relationship

Remember that Christ compares God’s relationship with us torepparttar 149912 relationship between a father and son. In this case,repparttar 149913 son would be a child. And a child has to rely onrepparttar 149914 wisdom and knowledge of his father for everything he has (remember that when Jesus is speaking,repparttar 149915 father wasrepparttar 149916 common provider inrepparttar 149917 household).
