The simple metaphor of a childlike heart plumbs profound spiritual truth. Jesus invites you to more than a stroll down memory lane. He offers you complete transformationfrom the inside out. It’s not about changing a few behaviors or mimicking a child’s demeanor. It’s about becoming like a child, through and through. Just as surely as your body has no life without the robust beat of a healthy heart, so the soul lives abundantly only with a free, joyous interior.
Here’s hope. Don’t miss it. Please believe it. Jesus is offering you a whole new heartthe heart of a little child.
