Toddler Love

“Mama! Baby didi* sneezed. Achoo!”
“He sneezed?”
“No. Achoo!”
“Achoo.”
“Yeah.” (said with a big smile)
“Mama! Look at me. Look at me. I dropped chopsticks.“
“You dropped your chopsticks?”
“No, Abby.”
“Oh! Abby dropped her chopsticks.”
“Yeah”.
“Doggie. Woof. Woof.”
“Where’s the doggie?”
“On an airplane.”
“Oh.”
Toddlers have a knack for stating the obvious and their childlike spirits can be humbling to the adults around them at times. Not only are they not easily embarrassed but they also point out our inconsistencies and weaknesses without even trying. Being a parent or caregiver should make anyone a better person as they try to set a good example for their children. Oftentimes we think we are the ones teaching children but they are our teachers instead. Matthew 19:14 says “Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." (NIV) We would do well to remember this verse when we are frustrated yet again with a child who has just managed to show us where we are lacking in our relationships with those around us. So, next time you hear an “Achoo” remember the love of a toddler and how they are unconsciously teaching us to be more childlike, drawing us closer into the arms of Jesus.

"and a child shall lead them."
Jesus loves children, the absolute innocence of a child well portrayed in your verse and prose. Thanx.
