Well, this is what he does right now. He is only about 10 days old so he eats, sleeps and gets diaper changes. I was able to spend a few hours this morning just holding him and he is so precious. Seldom do we get the time to just stop and look at the peacefulness of a baby while they are sleeping. Not a care in the world. Everything he needs is provided for them by loving parents. The funny thing is the parent’s know his need before he even realizes that there is one. He’s about due to eat, or he will need a “pit stop”, or even time for a nap.
So, what’s the take away from this for me right now? We have a Heavenly Father that knows us just like Mateo’s parents know him. He cares about us, loves us, provides for us, and anticipates our needs. He does these things because He loves us!
He knew we would all fail and fall, so he lovingly provided us a way of escape through his son Jesus. I have a son, and there are folks in my life that I care deeply about. But I can’t think of any that I would sacrifice my son for. Proving that I would be a terrible god, and we can all be thankful that I’m not one. I’m thankful that there is only one True God and that he loves us so much he died for us.
Babies make you think. Babies make you thankful. Babies make me smile!
