“ALTHOUGH YOU HAVE HIDDEN THESE THINGS FROM THE WISE AND THE LEARNED YOU HAVE REVEALED THEM TO THE CHILDLIKE.” MT 11:25-27
Humbly submit your will to God (Thy Will be done) and consecrate yourself to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through Mary and Joseph.
At that time Jesus exclaimed:
“I give praise to you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
for although you have hidden these things
from the wise and the learned
you have revealed them to the childlike.
Yes, Father, such has been your gracious will.
All things have been handed over to me by my Father.
No one knows the Son except the Father,
and no one knows the Father except the Son
and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal him.” MT 11:25-27
Why has God chosen to reveal all things to the childlike (12 uneducated, hard working, as normal as they come guys)? We must become like a child to love God. The only world a young person knows until they are 18 and on their own is one protected by their parents, priests, and teachers. A child trusts without fear because these trusted adults are always there for them. This is the love of the Father for us.
A young child doesn’t question (teens for a little while until reality sets in), just trust. They are innocent, kind and generous. Their love melts your heart. The Word of God does not need anyone with an ego, it needs love and someone to believe in it without fear. The Word needs people with unwavering faith, trust, and a love that will melt your heart. Not a love that expects something in return. This is where God planted the Word in Jesus and this is where it blossoms.
Today’s challenge: Be childlike in your approach to the revealed Word of God. Trust, believe, do not fear!
Be a servant, become a saint!
