# 27 Child-like Love for God
Before mass this morning I was sitting in the pew when a few rows ahead of me there were two boys fighting over a book. Their mother tried to break up the fight and (quietly) exclaimed “they’re fighting over the Bible!” It surprised her and, I’ll admit, it surprised me too. It’s so awesome to see the Bible as a book worth fighting over…
Anyway, the little boy that won must have been about 7 and when he turned around he had such a triumphant look on his face it was priceless! He was beaming with God’s Love because winning His Word was the biggest prize for sitting through mass 🙂
I just can’t help but admire the children’s bold Love for God and just how much we can learn from them. We live day to day trying to be close to God, sometimes without just letting it be natural…without whipping out the Bible and hugging it to ourselves…sometimes without even thinking about His Word…
Lord, make my love for You like a child’s love for You, pure and simple and true. Help me to love Your works and all You do for me and help me to appreciate each day, live out Your Will, and spend time with Your Word.
