What was Jesus thankful for?

“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. Yes, Father, it pleased you to do it this way. Luke 10:21

Jesus was thankful that God chose the childlike to receive His message instead of overly confident strategists,  jaded intellectuals, or proud academics. That had to make his job easier…and more fun. I am thankful for open-minds and open hearts, for those still capable of wonder and delight, for the childlike among us and for those who long to shed the guarded facade that disappointment and disillusionment has erected around them and be childlike again.

Lord, reawaken the child in us.
