Jesus told us we could only enter God’s Kingdom by becoming like little children. A new study reported in Science suggests a trait of very young infants that could be very valuable to God’s Kingdom: openness to new experiences.
The Johns Hopkins researchers found that 11-month-old infants, confronted with objects that behaved in unpredictable ways, were more — not less — likely to spend time with that object, investigating its properties and behaviors.
What would this kind of curiosity look like in the Kingdom of God? How might it benefit those of us with mental health issues who are often shunned in Christian churches as not “normal”?
