Title: Unless You Change and Become Like a Little Child
Added: 5 years ago
Artist: Father Robert Barron
Description: Children are like plants, rocks, and flowers in this sense: they don't know how to be something that they are not. They haven't yet learned to lie, dissemble, pretend, or to seek to be someone they are not meant to be. We are all, right now, being created by God for God's purposes. Childlike joy returns to us the moment we put aside all our games of self-promotion and self-deception and live in accord with God's deepest desire for us. Have you ever found yourself in the position of the disciples in today's Gospel: wrangling over power, status, and prestige? How do you react when Jesus places before you a little child and says, "become like him"
