Be good example setters to your children and do not hinder them. Recently I visited a church and I sat watching a wonderful young man be free to be himself and I can honestly say that when he lifted his little hands into the air and danced a circle in praise to God, it made me wish I was a child again, if only for a moment.
There is much to learn from that child. He has no understanding of all that is around him but he knows his father is there and he is safe. He has no knowledge of evil, no concept of what a problem is and no fear.
Children, when they are young, are fully receptive to learning, they are open-minded, free of problems, unbiased, unprejudiced and uncorrupted. They have no concept of good & evil, all they know is the joy of being a child.
Oh the innocence, the total trust of children- simple, pure and undefiled.
Learn from them why Jesus said unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
Peace be with you
