Where Are The Cookies?
Jesus taught that the Kingdom of God belonged to those who were childlike in their faith. As Johnny demonstrates, there is no pretension in a young child. A child doesn't feel a need to guise themselves in coyness or cloak themselves in deception. They just let their heart be known - I'm here for the cookies.
I'm encouraged to consider that as I approach the Lord in prayer. I don't need to present some false front. I don't need to try and clean up my appearance and make myself presentable. I can simply stumble into His presence and cry out in honesty - the good, the bad and the ugly. And as I put that to practice, what a blessing it is.
