Everyone’s a Kid

I believe in eternity – that God created us to be in communion with Him forever. From a temporal perspective, our lifespans on earth are essentially a blip compared to eternal life.

So humans on earth are all kids. We are simply growing up here on this earth until we die. Kids are full of wonder. They explore. They dance. They sing. They don’t care what others think of them.

I often look at an adult and try to see the kid beneath the surface. Kids are kids. Teenagers are kids who think they’re adults and are poor at hiding their childishness. Adults are kids who have become professionals at hiding the kid inside. Mature people realize they are children of God and embrace their “kid-ness.”

Go be a kid.
