Why Loving Like A Child can Actually Make You Happier!
My son is the sweetest boy; he loves anyone he meets. He is so loving that when his three-year-old brother is crying, he quickly runs over and hugs him while telling him everything is ok. Even when that little brother just whacked him on the head, he still only loves him.
Children have an unbiased capacity to love. No, let me rephrase that, because it is so much more than that, it is pure, carefree, and beautiful love. That love makes it easy for them to show affection without shame, to anyone or anything. A child even loves, to love, and loves sharing that love with everyone, especially their parents. Giving and sharing that love makes their life so rich and endlessly happy.
We know that the love inside of a child is cultivated by the love, comfort, peace, and security that only a parent can give. Capturing that incredible, oh-aspiring love that a child has inside, is the key to living a happier life as an adult.
It’s Love Actually
But Wait, How do I love like a child?
Well…..First, you must become a child! Why must we become a child? Well for one Jesus tells us precisely when he speaks to his disciples in Matthew 18:3-5, that we need to be like children to become greater than all of those in the land. Jesus the actual son of God tells the disciples that the greatest in all the kingdom are the children, and ;
“…unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.”
When you accept Jesus and his gift of life, you become free. Then you are like children carefree and full of life!

Once we accepted our gift of salvation, we inherit an unbiased capacity to love. Loving Jesus and others so passionately that we embrace Jesus. In the same way that my kids embrace almost everybody and everything,
except vegetables. We show affection without shame just like a child. We even love, to love, even at times when we don’t have a real understanding of why we feel this love and joy.

Wait, Wait, Wait, there’s more… Like a parent, He( God, Jesus, Holy Spirit) is always working behind the scenes for our good. He comforts us in the hard time of our lives, loves unconditionally and without prejudice.
He’s forgiving and is merciful even when we are not. Giving up his life as a ransom so that we may become blameless and free. Jesus died so we may go live in the His Kingdom, giving us everything we need and providing abundantly, down to the breath in our lungs. So that we may feel love and share love abundantly forever just like Jesus. He says to Love Him like children and seek Him like children “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of heaven belongs to such
“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the Kingdom of heaven belongs to such AS THESE (That’s US the adults that accepted Him)“- Matthew 19:14.
He wants more than anything to take care of his children, just like an earthly parent wants to care for their child.
Love & Live Like Children Forever
To love like children is the blessing that will transform your life. Especially, when Above all you seek and LOVE HIM! That love and happiness do not stop once we leave the earthly realm. No, it is EVERLASTING, and we get to enjoy it with our Father in the Kingdom we inherited. How can you not be happy after that kind of News!
Meantime here on earth when you start living in relationship with your Father, you start appreciating every minute of Life. The love you receive will bring you happiness that will turn you into a giver, of your time, gifts, and money. Children do all this and so much more because of that beautiful love they feel inside that has no explanation. Your amount of Happiness is only limited by your capacity to Love.
Now Go and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, like a child!
