The importance to become like Little Children

Daily Readings -29 November, 2016 – Reading 1, Isaiah 11:1-10;   Responsorial Psalm, Psalms 72:1, 7-8, 12-13, 17

Gospel, Luke 10:21-24
21 Just at this time, filled with joy by the Holy Spirit, he said, ‘I bless you, Father, Lord of heaven and of earth, for hiding these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them to little children. Yes, Father, for that is what it has pleased you to do. 22 Everything has been entrusted to me by my Father; and no one knows who the Son is except the Father, and who the Father is except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.’ 23 Then turning to his disciples he spoke to them by themselves, ‘Blessed are the eyes that see what you see, 24 for I tell you that many prophets and kings wanted to see what you see, and never saw it; to hear what you hear, and never heard it.’

My explanation:
What is God telling us in this gospel passage.  He is saying that he reveals himself to us his children.  When we were baptised, we became his children and that through baptism, he is revealing to us the secrets of His Kingdom.  The more intimate we become with him. the more he will reveal to us.  The question now is, why is he revealing himself to us.  He is doing so because he wants us to love him more and more and then for us to go and share him with others.  We need Jesus Christ to be saved and others also need him, to be saved.  So, while we are on a journey with Christ, it is important to share him with others. He is calling us to remain like little children – He wants us to be simple, humble, kind, loving, sharing, giving.  The day we become proud, we will stop hearing him speak to us because Pride is a Block. When we are like little children, we are closest to His Heart.  So let us throw pride out the window and embrace Humility and become like little children.
