Would we somehow confuse the little ones
When we know they start with such a simple faith
By our life, might we show them a love for other "things"
Will they understand what is truly real or fake

By our ways, will they think that Jesus is too busy
Like the disciples who told them to go away
Do we let them know how much Jesus loves us
And that we are secure in Him always

Jesus said, the faith of a little child
Is the only way to enter in
So if we are confused by the insecurities of this world
Will they know we can be safe in Him

Do we remember that a childish faith
Is what is so trusting and complete
That all that sweet kindness that they show
Goes such a long way for all we really need

May we let the tender candid child within us live
And not crush it with our daily care
To keep all that innocent belief that we love in them
Of such faith beyond compare

Soft Whispers from
Derry's Heart Poems 2006

The disciples came to Jesus and asked,
"Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?"
He called a little child and had him stand among them.
And he said: "I tell you the truth, unless you change
and become like little children,
you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
Therefore, whoever humbles himself
like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.
"See that you do not look down on one of these little ones.
For I tell you that their angels in heaven
always see the face of my Father in heaven.
Matthew 18:1-5,10
