Matthew 18:2-4 He called a little child and had him stand among them. And he said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
I have thought about the verse and have always gotten the gist of it. But the other night at Church we had a Zumba party to raise money for the youth mission trip. So I went... I tried, reluctantly for a little while to do Zumba... being totally self conscious. Finally I went to the side and sat down...just before I left early for home....where I could so something I was good at, knit. Before I left I saw a group of children up front... Zumb-ing away!!... They were doing their best be good Zumba dancers...and having fun!!... they were not worried about a thing excepting trying their best to do what they were told. Were they perfect, no more than I had been!... Where they enthusiastic?! Yes! They went about doing what they were told to do to the very best of their ability, not giving up....and if they get to keep coming back they will be good Zumba dancers one day. God tells us all the time to do things...and we are like Moses and say God I am not good at this don't send me!!.. At least Moses did what God ask him to do, God had so send his brother to do the speaking but Moses did what God ask. We need to be as willing as little children to try, to learn, to trust in all that God ask of us. If we are not good at it the first time, He will pick us up and dust us off, give us more instruction and we will be better at it the next time....the important thing is to have the heart, and enthusiasm of a child and do our best, our very best to do what God tells us to do. To trust that God will take care of us like a good parent takes care of their child.
