Tuesday March 28th Matthew 21:15-16

'Do you hear what these children are saying?' they asked him.
'Yes,' replied Jesus, ' have you never heard,'
" From the lips of children and infants, you Lord, have called forth your praise" ?'

I don't like snails. Even so, I would take them into Playschool to allow the children in my care to observe. One memorable morning I found myself laid on the floor, head under a table — with 3 small boys. A snail had escaped the tray, slithered across the table, down the edge and was now completely upside down — underneath it!
How does it move? Why doesn't it fall off? Their questions came pouring out as they watched this small creature with continuing astonishment.
I still don't like snails in my garden, but I have never forgotten how those children felt as they watched with wonder.
Our faith can be a bit like that. As adults, we get caught up in wordly matters and focus on the bad things going on and don't see the small amazing things that God is doing within them.

Heavenly Father, help us to see your world through a child's eye,
to see the beauty within the ugliness of our world.
and to find the places worthy of wonder and praise.
