Things used to be simple then. As I grew up, I learned how people like to make things a lot more complicated than they should be. It’s as though we can’t accept something as true or valuable if we haven’t achieved it through difficult means.
Even in matters of spirituality, many people scoff at Christianity because they see it to be too simple. And being simple, it has often been tagged as too good to be true, a myth, or a child’s fairy tale that could never happen in real life.
We don’t believe in happy endings anymore. We can’t believe there is a heaven where we can be eternally happy. We find it impossible to believe in a God who can love us without measure or end.
And so we seek other forms of spirituality. We seek powers we can control and occult practices and beliefs that are hard to understand. People believe in such things because they seem to be mysterious, a secret meant only for the elite few.
With Christianity, however, heaven is given to us free. It has already been paid for by Jesus Christ Himself who loves the humble and the meek. Indeed, the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who can be like a little child. Pure, innocent and true.
Jesus called a little child to himself, and set him in the middle of them and said, “Most certainly I tell you, unless you turn and become as little children, you will in no way enter into the Kingdom of Heaven.” – Matthew 18:2-3, WEBBE
