“And they brought to him young children, that he might touch them. And the disciples rebuked them that brought them. Whom when Jesus saw, he was much displeased and saith to them: Let the little children come to me and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God” (Mk. 10, 13-16).

How many things can we learn from children: their simplicity, their joy, their enthusiasm, their innocence, their purity, but especially we can learn their calm confidence. Children know very well that their parents love them and that is why they blindly trust them. They don’t question things, they simply abandon themselves to the will of their parents. It is precisely this trust that is most pleasing to Christ and therefore He invites us to imitate them in our relationship with the Heavenly Father.

God is an infinitely good Father and He always seeks to show us His love, but He asks us to be like children, that we accept His designs for us with simplicity and abandon ourselves in His arms, with the full confidence that His love for us is greater and more powerful than any setback. 

Joy is the reflection of a soul that trusts in God and is the clearest and most eloquent distinctive of the Christian faith, so today let us strive to spread it to all those who approach us, knowing that our joy is a silent but eloquent word that speaks of God's love and of our trust in Him.

Purpose: Show a cheerful face despite the difficulties knowing that I will never lack God's help and protection.
