I used to think that having “childlike faith” means accepting whatever people say.
How far from the truth that is! Imagine this:-
Your five-year old niece. She sees a rainbow.
“What is that?” she says, pointing.
“It’s a rainbow,” you answer.
Not satisfied, she probes further, “Why is it there?”.
“Because God put it there,” the answer comes easily from you.
It goes on. Until she gets the answer that satisfies her.
and that is what it means to have a childlike faith---questioning yet trusting, innocent and pure. That doesn’t mean we’ve to be Naïve, however.
