Jesus, your Word praises the simple-hearted. It also says that it is easier for a camel to fit through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to get into heaven. I think it’s probably even hard for intellectuals because they are so lead by their minds and can be out of touch with their hearts. Holy Spirit, break through the intellectual barriers that these people have put up and show them the simplicity of the love relationship that you desire from them. Help them to push aside their questions long enough to give faith a chance. Father, some of these people are just too smart for their own good! Give us simple hearts, the hearts of children.
Thank you, Jesus. We are your children. We love you!
