you could see from my viewpoint
then you would find true rest............
"unless you turn and become as little children, you will in no way experience my kingdom." (matthew 18:3)
"are you tired? worn out? burned out on religion? come to me. get away with me and you'll recover your life. i'll show you how to take a real rest..." (matthew 11:28)
the first step toward entering into the kingdom of grace is to become as little children: knowing ourselves utterly ignorant, helpless, humble, teachable, free from selfish ambition, and hanging wholly on our Father for a supply of all our needs and wants. when children are very young, they do not desire authority, they do not regard outward distinctions, they are free from malice, they are teachable and willingly dependent upon their parents. it is true that they soon begin to show other dispositions and other ideas are taught them at an early age. but, if we desire to truly experience His kingdom, we need to be daily renewed in the spirit of our minds, that we may become simple and humble, as little children, and willing to be the least of all.
