THIS WAS YOUR GOOD PLEASURE

Matthew 11:25-26 “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 little children. Yes, Father, for this was your good pleasure.”
As I walked home one day through the African bush I met a six-year-old boy whom I knew. He wore nothing except a big smile. As he came closer, he greeted me with a wider grin and said, “All is well.”
He was in a state of nothingness. The child had no toys or books. His only set of clothes was probably at home with his mother to wash.
But still having nothing, he gave me a big toothless beam and said, “All is well.”
My heart squeezed. I have never been in such a state of nothingness. If I had nothing, could I have said, “All is well?”
You have hidden these things from the wise and learned and revealed them to little children.
