Within each of us, throughout all the days of our life, there remains the Child of Who We Are. Not excluding what our age is today, a childlike heart occupies its position in our heart, mind and emotions. It's a great thing, or can be. The spontaneous, curious, lighthearted, innocent, loving, and accepting personality of children is what we can have, and what Jesus desires to see in us. Adult mind and actions when they are needed, and childlike wonder and excitement to brighten otherwise dreary days.
They were there the last week as He entered Jerusalem. The children also waved palm branches and shouted, "Hosanna, blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord!" John 12:13. Simple faith, beautiful faith. I doubt they could have explained every iota of what it all meant. But They Believed. And they came. And they chose to worship "their King." I don't know what many in the world will be doing this week, but my family is choosing to join in with the music in our hearts - We are His children. He is our King. He is our Lord.
