Through the Eyes of a Child- By Melissa Lundy

Read Matthew 19:14
Recently, I was at my son’s baseball game.  To pass the time, my 4 year old daughter began tossing a stick up in the air saying, “I’m trying to toss this stick up to heaven for Pottsie.”  (Potts was our family dog that passed away over a year ago)…Ahhh, the innocence of a child.  Even though children do not know all the answers and facts about heaven, they believe it is real.  They simply accept the truth found in the Bible.  Matthew 19:14 (NIV) Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” In order to accept Christ into our hearts, we must have the mindset of a child; the sense of wonder and to simply believe because the Bible tells us so.  Take time to open your “childlike” eyes to see God’s wonders; feel His love and experience His blessings through people and circumstances you encounter today and every day!  Not only will you be amazed by what you see, you will have a savior to share with them.
