Teacher: The Beloved.
Subject: “Seek to Become Like a Little Child.”

Message received by Lytske.

The Beloved: ‘Except ye become as little children, ye cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven,’ was the injunction of your Master Jesus, when He walked the earth more than 2000 years ago. This saying has been grossly misunderstood and never seriously put into practice.

It simply means to have a trusting, happy faith in the loving over-care of your heavenly Parents, like a well-balanced child trusts its earth parents, who provide for his or her mental, emotional, and physical wellbeing. The spiritual nature of the child ought never to be forced into the adult system of beliefs with its dos and don’ts. Children, by their very nature, will naturally develop a trusting faith-filled relationship with the Creator God, according to the example set before them by their parents.

A child learns by example, and does not seek to know the future, as it intuitively knows that this will come to pass as surely as night follows day. It is learning to trust and have faith that this is so, as it daily accepts this outworking of natural laws laid down by the design of the Creators.

To seek to know the future is to rob faith of its sweet fulfillment. ‘According to your faith, it shall be done unto you,’ said Jesus, when He healed the people. It was their personal faith which accomplished the healing.

Do become more carefree, and know that all is well. Become less critical and judgmental, be open and friendly towards all. Learn from the example of the Master, who was never in a hurry, and had an uplifting word of encouragement for all He met in His travels.”

Seek to become like a little child that is filled with glad expectations and does not question its parents loving over-care.
