I think there’s a reason Jesus loved children and it wasn’t just because he was a “kid person.” Kids get it. They enjoy the little things, they forgive quickly, they laugh easily, they understand the purity of joy. The same joy that somehow gets twisted to mean success which gets twisted to mean “whatever’s next.”
