Protecting childlike Innocence
I remember a conversation I once had with a nine-year-old. When she asked me about my work as a public speaker, I explained how much I loved talking with people about God’s goodness and about how very much He loves them. She responded, “That must be easy, because it’s true.” Her answer intrigued me because I knew she did not have any religious affiliation or spiritual education. When I asked her if she believed in God and she answered yes, I asked her why. “Because I just do,” she answered.
My nine-year-old friend was free of doubt, speculation, or any puzzled human reasoning. There was just a simple and ready acceptance of God’s existence, of His goodness and love. For me, her answer was filled with such sweet, childlike innocence.
