Childlike revelations

At that time Jesus prayed this prayer: “O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, thank you for hiding these things from those who think themselves wise and clever, and for revealing them to the childlike.” Matt. 11:25

The childlike (and there is a difference between childish and childlike) don’t feel the need to defend paradigms or connect all the dots. For everything we know, God knows more. Settling a matter in our minds too soon can lead to settling for less than the whole and deepest truth.

Lord, help me to be a more childlike believer.
