Training Their Hearts – part 2
Have you sat back and just stared into the sky recently? We’ve all looked up at the sky before but have we really seen it? As adults we tend to overlook the miraculous whereas children tend to see it everywhere. Just watch at this short clip from the 90′s flick “Blast From The Past”.
If you have seen the movie you know that Adam was born underground and lived there until he turned 30 years old. He marvelled at the sky when he saw it for the first time, while other adults just stared blankly. It was only a child that smiled and said she saw it too.
Training the heart of a child isn’t all about discipline. Getting down on the floor and seeing the world through new eyes, your child’s eyes, can make such a big difference on how you view your kids and how you react with them. Stare at the sky and realize how big it is. Feel the childlike wonder of God’s creation and pass that on to your children.
Adults have forgotten how truly wonderful God’s world is. However, our kids need to see us in awe over God’s greatness on a regular basis. We need to remember to stop and smell the roses – or stare at the sky.
…And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said,
“Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never
enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the
greatest in the kingdom of heaven…” Matthew 18:2-4
