07/14/2004: "Daily Reflection on Scripture"

What a mystery it is who seems to know God best amongst all us fallen human beings. It would seem that those who have made a life of studying scripture and the teachings of the Church would know God more fully than those who only attend weekly Mass. But this is not always the case. It is often the most "uneducated" people who seem to be closest to God. It would seem that the Priests and Bishops would most put their trust in God. But this is not always the case. It is often those who work for their daily bread who trust God most.

We often hear Christ relate to the childlike. He tells us to have a faith like a child. I always struggle to know how to embrace this truth. What does it mean? I just don't have the answer. I'm not a child anymore. I can no longer think as a child. But what I come away with today from this reading is that I must pray about this. I must strive, even if how to is eluding me, to have a faith like a child. Maybe just accepting that I can no longer remember what it is like to be a child, will put me on the right path. Maybe accepting that we can not know what it is be God, will help us have the faith of a child.

May we all pray for the insight to know how to love God as a child does.
