The other day my 4-year old son and I were sitting in the couch and watching TV his favorite cartoon show.
For some reason I was reminded of the scriptures that talks about Child-like faith.
My curiosity leads me to ask my unsuspecting boy..."Son, if we build our own house, how many swimming pools do you wanna have?"
Without hesitation, he said "Dad, I want 3 swimming pools. One for you, one for mom and one for me."
Interesting answer huh?
If you ask an adult the same question you'll probably hear...
"What are you talking about? You can't even afford to have a bath tub."
Funny but true.
Children are like fearless creature. They trust so much their parents that all things will work together.
Adults on the other hand have fears, reservations, and with very little faith.
No wonder why Christ wants us to have a child like faith to enter the kingdom of heavens.
And Jesus is offering us is a bargain.
He's only asking for a mustard size faith to move a mountain size problem.
Isn't that a great deal?
So how do we increase our faith?
Romans 10:17 says..."faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God."
Fact is, there's no other way to increase our faith but by continuously memorizing and meditating God's Word.
Once we have Bible verses in our memory, it's much easier for us to meditate on it wherever we go.
Scripture memorization is not just an activity but a lifestyle. Make it part of your life and your life will never be the same again.
