“ In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father; Lord of heaven and earth, that thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast reveled them unto babes: even so, Father; for it seemed good in thy sight.” (Luke 10:21)
Jesus gives us an example of thanksgiving in a prayer to the Father. The premise behind CEF is children can understand God’s word. Why is it that those who are no longer babes struggle with God’s word?.
Yours in Christ,
