Wise or Infant?

At that time Jesus said, “I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because You have hidden these things from the wise and learned and revealed them to infants.” Matthew 11:25 HCSB

There are well-known people in our world who seem to have attitudes of pride. They take every opportunity to exclaim what they have accomplished, where they have been, how much money they possess, and how much power they have achieved. An attitude of humility is far from their thinking. Often these people are very gifted and they may be eloquent in speech, but the absence of humility seems to overshadow their skills and abilities.

In this verse Jesus mentions two types of people – the wise and learned and infants. The wise and learned are arrogant and believe they are great in their own minds while the infants are like children who are open and trusting and have a humble attitude.

Challenge: Are you wise in your own eyes? Come to Christ with a childlike faith. Be open to His truths and have a humble attitude. Only God is all-knowing and has all of the answers to life problems so through Him we can experience the abundant life that He desires for each of us. Pray that you will have a humble spirit and childlike faith.
