Last night at Bible study I chose the song ‘Jesus Loves Me’. Sung in Polish, it still means the same as the words I grew up with.
‘Ah!’ my friend said beside me. ‘Why you want to sing this–because you feel like a child today?’
‘No. Because I like to sing it,’ I said. I carried an adult-sized load yesterday, not a child’s.
But Jesus said we are to be like children to be part of His kingdom. I like that about Him, because it means He will take me in my simplicity and helplessness. I think part of my soul would die if I’d feel too grown-up to sing ‘Jesus Loves Me.’
