Road To Joy Tip #8: Dance for Joy

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”  Matthew 19:14 (NIV)

Joy seems almost innately implanted within small children who take such delight in little pleasures. Recently at an outdoor concert, a toddler became the audience’s source of entertainment as he danced with abandon and joy; he just couldn’t stop himself. As I chuckled about his antics, I began to wonder why adults fail to express themselves so joyously. Where did our joy go? God grants the ‘kingdom of Heaven” for those with a childlike faith, one that is filled with joy and trust in Him.Wouldn’t you like to find this kind of faith? Ask God to show you how to nurture a child-like faith so that you can dance for joy.
