"Except Ye Become ..."

Calls to Christian development must be held in tension with a Lord who called the little children to Him, and told us that we don't have a thing on them when it comes to acceptability before God. In fact, we could take a few lessons from the disheveled little brats.

As my daughter develops into the often exasperating bundle of energy which is a four-year-old, I continually suspect that she is more joyful, more full of life, more perfectly what God had in mind when He thought up "human" than I am ever able to approximate.
