I love this picture. Some years ago my friend Steve and I dressed up for some event, I can’t remember. I was Gas Man (I’m on the left) and he was Wonder Woman.
I keep this picture out to remind myself not to take” myself or life” to seriously.
When I can play and laugh at myself, it helps me to get a lighter perspective on things going on in my life.
We adults have a hard time playing and letting the child inside come out. As we get older we are suppose to “act” grownup. Many of us were taught that as we got older we were to get “serious” about life. We put our child- like characteristics away. It became harder for many of us adults to “play”.
LUKE 18;16-18 But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 17 Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”
I wonder if Jesus wants us to keep our child-like purity and playfulness?
Do you have a hard time letting yourself play? Do you have a hard time giving yourself permission to have some fun and act like a kid again?
Some of us even as children were never given permission to be kids. We had to be serious and grown up even as a child.
I hope this week you play a little. Maybe go up to a young person and make a “funny face” and then say “God loves you and so do I.”
Be a Miracle
