Called to Be Childlike

Listen to the audio/podcast version, here.

You can learn a lot by spending time with children. I have known this for some time now but was reminded of it again just the other day. It was a lazy Sunday afternoon. I was hanging around the house after watching church online here in Haiti and I had the thought to take Nash to play over on the soccer field close to where we live. I text a friend around 11:30 am and asked if she and her daughters would like to join us. We planned to meet up at 2 pm that afternoon.

From 11:30 until 1:50 pm Nash must have asked me 20+ times the following question... “Is it time to go to the soccer field to play?” to which I would respond with a simple “No, not yet.” Then I would continue with what I was doing. Then the question would come again just minutes later. “Is it time to go to the soccer field to play?” Again, I responded, “No, not yet.”
