As A Little Child

By now, the cherubim and seraphim who celebrate Christmas around the world, and in your life, have done their thing with all the treasures “Santa” left. The adults connected to said cherubs are probably relieved, and exhausted.

It is “the most wonderful time of the year.” It is also the busiest, at least in my life. There is the temptation to go racing through the month of December, head down, with joyful anticipation only of January 2, when we are done for another year. But what wonderful experiences do we miss out on if we don’t allow ourselves to be “as a little child”?

You remember the quote from the New Testament—unless you become as a little child, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. That’s childlike, not childish.

So how do children “do” life, and what lessons can we mature adults learn from them—during the December holidays and throughout the year? Click to listen to my talk from December 21, titled “As A Little Child.”
