Our lives get so full, and our schedules so dictated by distractions, that before we know it, time has passed, kids are grown, things have changed, we got older, and it was all a blur. So the point of Lent is to stop that rush of distraction, and instead, to pause, focus, pray, look around, and notice how God is moving in the world and in you.
Jesus said, “Anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it” (Luke 18:17). We often paraphrase that into a reminder to have “faith like a child.” So what might that involve? Well kids are wonderfully imaginative, so should we have a more imaginative faith?
