Do we trust God?
It may seem like a silly question – but do we really trust Him?
How often do we try to convince ourselves that we know best? That we can fulfill our own happiness?
Back in college, I remember discerning the priesthood for all of about 5 minutes. The thought scared me that God would be calling me to something that wouldn’t make me happy.
How ridiculous is that idea! That God would somehow want us to not be happy.
The path to God is the path to happiness.
And, walking that path really comes down to the difference between acting childish and childlike.
Acting childish is whining about not getting our way. Acting childlike is depending on God for our needs – trusting in Him.
“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat, or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds in the sky; they do not sow or reap, they gather nothing into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are not you more important than they? Can any of you by worrying add a single moment to your life-span?” Matthew 6:25-27
It’s that childlike trust and dependence that we’re called to.
