He sits to learn.
He doesn’t run around. He sits to learn!
He considers himself to be just like a child who doesn’t know anything.
When he sits to learn, he surrenders his knowledge, empties himself as if he didn’t have any knowledge.
A child of God hears with an open mind to catch those which may not agree with the Word of God and to let go those which don’t agree with the Word of God.
Jesus said, “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 18:3
Jesus said that to those who were thinking and analyzing what they were listening and seeing according to the world they knew; not according to what Jesus was telling them. Actually Jesus said that to His own Disciples who were with Him, 24/7. Why? They were the ones who came to “the church” to the gathering, thinking that they knew it all; they figured it all out!
He asked us to “become!” Becoming is a process; an active process of change! A process one has to consciously and purposely choose to be!
Jesus said to His Disciples, be like a child. Children are always eager to learn so that they can copy and do it exactly as they learn. That is why they tend to ask adults this question: “Do it again!”
I wish I had that attitude to say to God, “Tell me again so that I know that You my God will never forget nor forsake me” instead of going around with fear of being alone, without a Shepherd!
Oh, LORD, give us a teachable spirit! A spirit that says, “I know nothing! Teach me again!”///
