In Your wisdom, You advised Your children not to eat the fruit from the tree of “The knowledge of Good and Evil”. It was…and remains today, Your desire for each of us to be innocent.
While innocence is mocked by the world and the world is madly scrambling to rob us and our children of the joy of our innocence, it pleases God to protect us from the schemes of the world.
I have too often become cynical…mistrusting the enticements of our culture…losing the satisfaction of serving for the fear of letting my guard down and being “played” by the world.
Teach me to trust and approach life like a child so that I might enjoy the satisfaction of making a difference in the lives of others.
Scripture: “He will make your innocence radiate like the dawn, and the justice of your cause will shine like the noonday sun.” Psalms 37:6
