Sermons on “Children”
Christians have always had a high view of education, because all truth is God’s truth. But for a well-balanced spiritual life, we need to ask ourselves, “Do I have a teacher?” and, “Do I have a student?”
Jesus says that in receiving a child we are receiving him. That may sound cute on first blush, but what if Jesus was really like a child? You know . . . a child with real and constant demands, and, yet what if God set up the world so that he wasn’t going to force us to meet his demands. That’s just how it happened.
