Except ye become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18:3)
Christian men and women who have sincerely knelt at the feet of Jesus and have surrendered themselves to His meekness have found a comforting and satisfying place of rest.
They have discovered that we do not have to worry about what people think of us—as long as God is pleased!
We are no longer plagued with the heavy burden of artificiality. Think of the millions who live in secret fear that some day they will be careless and by chance an enemy or a friend will be allowed to peep into their poor, empty souls. Bright people are tense and alert in fear that they may be trapped into saying something common or stupid.
It is plain to see that the heart of the artificial worldling is breaking under the burden, under the weight of pretense and pride.
To men and women everywhere Jesus says, “Come unto Me, and I will give you rest!” He offers His grace and His mercy—blessed relief that comes when we accept ourselves for what we are and cease to pretend!
