Childlike Behavior

In his book Orthodoxy, G. K. Chesterton talks about the importance of being childlike, and how when we are childlike, perhaps we are being more like God than we know. He goes on to illustrate this point: “It is possible that God says every morning, ‘Do it again’ to the sun; and every evening, ‘Do it again’ to the moon. It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately but has never got tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we” (G. K. Chesterton, Orthodoxy [Mineola, NY: Dover Publications, 2020], 52–53).
