MacDonald: childlikeness

Wednesday, August 9, 2023
    Feast of Mary Sumner, Founder of the Mothers’ Union, 1921
    [Jesus:] “I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”
    —Mark 10:15 (NIV)
    There is a childhood into which we have to grow, just as there is a childhood which we must leave behind; a childlikeness which is the highest gain of humanity, and a childishness from which but few of those who are counted the wisest among men, have freed themselves in their imagined progress towards the reality of things.
    ... George MacDonald (1824-1905), David Elginbrod, vol. 1, Bernhard Tauchnitz, 1871, p. 50 (see the book)
    See also Mark 10:15; Matt. 18:3; 19:13-15; Luke 18:17; John 3:3-6; 1 Pet. 1:14; 2:2
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, keep me simple in Christ.
