“If it is too difficult to be understood by a child, it’s not of God”, came the remark from the pulpit.

“[Jesus] said, “I tell you the truth, unless you turn around and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven!”
Mat 18:3

This is not so! We are called throughout the New Testament to challenge our minds, to seek meat and not to be satisfied with milk, to love God with all our minds, to ‘know the times’. The call to be like little children has nothing to do with knowledge and theology, it has every thing to do with trust. Theology – thinking about God – IS complicated because God is complicated! So thank God that I am not restricted to only knowing about God, I am first and foremost called to trust Him like a child.
