At that time Jesus exclaimed:
“I give praise to you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
for although you have hidden these things
from the wise and the learned
you have revealed them to the childlike.
– Matthew 11:25-27

Jesus often used children to illustrate how we should relate to God our Heavenly Father. Children have a deep trust and confidence in their parents and do not worry where the money and food will come from. So we, too, should have a deep trust and confidence in God to care for us.
Robert Fulghum was right when he said it all in the title of his book, All I Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten. Kindergarten counsels make perfect sense: Share the cookie. Always tell the truth. When you cross the street, hold hands. When it’s not yours, don’t take it. When you get something, return it where you got it. When you have wronged someone, say you’re sorry. – Jon Escoto
Father, may I remember that I am Your child. May I regain the sense of wonder and the simple wisdom that You planted in my heart.
