A recent Facebook video is proof that God’s love has no age boundaries! This touching video captures a little girl’s reaction to a tender moment in an episode in a children’s dinosaur television program. Just by the look on that little girl’s face, you can tell that her tears were genuine and heartfelt. No coercion was made in any way by her mother, who was in fact actually quite surprised by the potency of her daughter’s feelings for the character. It is also clear that the little girl was aware that the story or the characters were fiction, and that it was a touching story any person could relate to. Thus, the only conclusion to be made from this is that the mother’s daughter was expressing pure compassion independently, and inspired by God.
It’s a simple and powerful reminder for us older folks that God’s love can be experienced by and be coming from anyone no matter their age. No educational degrees in theology are required – we simply receive His love for us and become vessels of His love to others. God is love! Children are especially cherished by God. Jesus Himself had said, “Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.” (Matthew 19:13 NLT.) And the best part is we never grow out of His love, either. We will always be God’s children no matter how wrinkled we get, and any of us can love just like this little child. What a precious revelation!
