The kingdom of heaven is my playground

Imagine the kingdom of heaven as a giant playground where you are free to explore God’s creation.  Think about that for a minute.  Jesus said we need to become like little children to enter into the kingdom (Matt 18:3) and what do kids love to do more than anything else?  Play!  I remember as a little kid loving to play on monkey bars or any other playground equipment; I even fractured my arm once taking the risk of getting on the tall ones and then falling off.  Kids are fearless until someone teaches them to be afraid.  So what if we took the same approach of entering the kingdom of heaven with childlike abandonment and with no fear of how high the monkey bars are, or how difficult the challenge seems to be.  Playing on the playground brings joy, happiness, and excitement as we discover all that God has planned for us (1 Cor. 2:9-10, emphasis on 10).

So what are you waiting for?
