“Can I have a bite, daddy?”
– Hadley, my three-year-old

This, in a nutshell, is parenthood.

If you have it, they want it.

But it’s also a picture of our spiritual walk.

For us, it’s not about prying God to break off a piece of the good stuff. Our journey, instead, is about learning to want the good stuff.

This, I believe, is why Jesus made such a big deal about the children.

This is something they inherently understand.

Jesus said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 18:3).
