What stubborn people we can be! Selfish to the core, we want our way, not someone else’s…and certainly not God’s. Short-sighted, we see the immediate and the obvious, not the ultimate and the hidden.

Those efforts only intensify when faced with an adversary. Then we aren’t satisfied with simply standing our ground and being determined…getting even becomes our agenda.

What does it mean to have childlike faith?
The concept of faith is woven through the pages of Scripture and is essential to a personal relationship with God. In fact, “without faith, it is impossible to please God” (Hebrews 11:6 NIV).
