Scripture often uses the word heart when referring to our spirit. Mike Mason, in his excellent book The Mystery of Children, states the following regarding this issue of spirit/heart: "Jesus wants us to become like children because our spirits lived closest to the surface during our childhood. In childhood our hearts are the most transparent, most vulnerable, most malleable. Growing us usually means covering up our spirit more and more with flesh. God wants us to become the person we really are inside, the person we were born to be. Becoming childlike involves peeling away the masks to get back to the real, rosy-cheeked, bright-eyed face beneath." (Quoted in "The Missing Commandment: Love Yourself")
In this short video clip, we address the topic, "Why God Loves My Childlikeness." See if you are in agreement with the Father on this.
