Single-handed Theology – And a little child shall lead them

Maybe being a parent means being less of a grown-up.

Her dependence on me, the me who lacks so much wisdom and experience, is humbling.

It is this humility that gives me the heart of a child, breaks me open enough that I must run to my Father and say “help please!” because I cannot put the pieces together the way they should go.

She looks up with so much eager wonder, with outstretched arms and pleading eyes, with total reliance, and I see myself in her.

She is the little child leading me back to God.

(Isaiah 11:6)

  1. wow.

    now here's something that makes me wonder.

    i'm not much of a believer under normal circumstances, but every once in a while it all makes sense because of someones' insight.

    this is one of those insights.

    thank you.
