Tandaan ninyo: kapag hindi kayo nagbago at naging katulad ng mga bata, hinding-hindi kayo makakapasok sa kaharian ng langit.

Mateo 18:3.

In one farm in Bicol, there is a playground with this signage: “Playground of Young Adults and not so Young”. Sa gitna ng mataas na sikat ng araw, may ilang young adults na masayang naglalaro, paulit-ulit sa pag-swing at slide, parang mga batang hindi napapagod. They look and feel so relaxed.

Young adults man tayo or much older, we can learn something from the children. Although hindi na maibabalik ang ating pagkabata, puwede tayong maging child-like. Ang paalala nga ng Panginoong Jesus, becoming like little children is the way to enter the kingdom of heaven. Paano ba ang maging katulad ng mga bata? How can we be child-like?

First, we can be child-like in the way we entrust our concerns to the heavenly Father.

As we grow old and mature, we work for a living. But children don’t work, at umaasa lang sa sustento ng kanilang mga magulang. Remember, when we were children, we used to trust our parents to take good care of us? In the same manner, let us trust our Heavenly Father. He is always concerned about us, His children. Kahit anong edad natin, sa Kanyang mga mata, tayong lahat ay mga batang nangangailangan ng Kanyang pag-aalaga bilang Ama. Kaya naman we can trust Him to provide all our needs.

Second, we can be child-like by always taking time to play and rest.

As we grow old and mature, we take on more responsibilities. Gumagawa na tayo ng to-do lists at naghahabol ng deadlines. Nakakapagod sa isip at katawan ang pagharap sa hamon ng buhay. Most of the time, we don’t have the chance to rest. Pero ang mga bata ay natural na masayahin at mahilig maglaro. Kaya let us be child-like by taking time to play and rest. Our loving Father gave us seven days a week. Sa loob ng isang linggo, may time to work and may time to play. We may have many concerns, but take time to play and be carefree. We can rest in our heavenly Father knowing He’ll take care of everything.

Sabi ng isang Tagalog folk song, ang magtanim ay di biro. Ngayon, puwede rin nating sabihing ang maglaro ay di biro. Seryosohin natin ang sinabi ni Jesus: Let us be like little children.

Heavenly Father, thank You that I can be like a child na masayahin, mahilig maglaro, at mapagtiwala. I can relax in Your presence. You are my rest and my comfort. I entrust to You my life and my everyday concerns. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
