We filled up the Internet Cafe with people, too many people per cubic foot, which helped a couple who were studying decide to do something else. I observed that bringing lots of children can really clear a restaurant. I will remember this next time I don’t want to dine with strangers, but want to eat at Ruth’s Chris Steak house in Portland. Kids are a wonderful asset, they drive away boring grumpy people, prevent sleazy people from handing you base ball cards on the strip in Vegas, and prevent you from sleeping too much. In case we forgot, we can see pure joy, absolute cuteness, and perfect tantrums, all done with ultimate passion. Nothing is more precocious than the sincerity of a child. Jesus recognized this, In Mark 10:15 he said “Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it” Jesus knows a child is 100% sincere and 100% dependent on his parents as we are to Christ. In the end of the day, no matter how old we are, if we just watch, there is something to be learned for the youngest among us.
Good evening and good night..
