“At that time Jesus prayed this prayer: ‘O Father, thank you for hiding these things from those who think themselves wise and clever, and for revealing them to the childlike.'” (Matthew‬ ‭11:25‬ ‭NLT‬‬)

In November of 2013, 10-year-old Nathan Grey made a discovery, according to livescience.com. With the help of his father, Dave Lane, owner and operator of Abbey Ridge Conservatory in Stillwater Lake, Nova Scotia, little Nathan became the youngest person to ever discover a supernova, which is an exploding star. Not bad for an elementary student!

Just as a simple child can make a scientific discovery, so also does God help our simple minds to grasp His fantastic truths. If anything, the smarter we become in ourselves, the less likely we will be willing to accept God’s ways, preferring concrete evidence over faith and trust. God becomes too simple.

The truly wise are not just those with higher education degrees. What a shame to miss the most profound discovery of all, God’s love and grace, because we wanted something more rational and complex! Keep it simple! You are loved!
