Through the Eyes of a Child

Key_to_Heaven_1Children have long been referred to as the key to our future, and rightly so as they will inherit the world and eventually reside, influence and lead it as adults.  From a theological sense, however, there have been many references to the guarantee of a place in heaven, much akin as the key to heaven, being the ability to see and live life through the eyes of a child.

What then, could it possibly mean to see through the eyes of a child?  At a minimum, it is the absence of filters, pure honesty and innocence magnified.  Moreover, it is authenticity, vulnerability and kindness without compromise, without prejudice nor fear.

The eyes of a child represents a naive, positive and pure observation of reality, absolute and unaltered in semantics and virtue. Eyes_of_a_child The eyes of a child observes the world with pure honesty, with unlimited potential, with absolute faith, blamelessness and harmlessness with the totality of purity of thought.   Indeed, the eyes of a child sees the world framed in goodwill, truth and possibility.

And so it is quite profound and beautiful when the world is perceived without reproach.  True beauty is not only possible, but exclusively witnessed through the eyes of the child.  It is vision without disease or destruction.  The eyes of child create happiness, truth and singular compassion for others without hesitation or reservation.

Could it be possible to replicate this experience as an adult?  Can we learn how to see the world through the eyes of a child?  What is preventing us from eliminating the interference and distractions of our world?  Can we literally visualize and see the impact and consequence of God without fictitious alteration or contextual embellishment?

It is no wonder we covet childhood as we grow and mature into adulthood.  The pure joy of experiencing life without adversity solidifies endless possibility and faith in mankind.  It is no wonder that the most profound insight and revelation of life is witnessed exclusively by children.  The essence of sinless beauty and proper perspective equates to a visual paradise of thought and consciousness.

The key to heaven rests with our perception of life and whether we choose to do and see the good in others and the world around us.  I choose to believe and embrace the possibilities of goodwill and brotherhood as Christmas reminds us to think like a child.  Let us remember our beginning in the hope of accepting and creating our future.  Pray that we can behave and experience this special season as we did when we were innocent, young and full of joy and hope.  Be well.

  1. Great post. I don’t know if as adults we can completely see life through the eyes of a child because we become hardened by life; however, I do know that when we submit our thoughts and heart to God, we get a different point of view. With all the difficulties in this world, I cannot imagine seeing through my own eyes, rather than his… I would be overwhelmed with sorrow as to how broken life is. Thank God that He has it in his control. I may not understand His plans, but at least I can rest in knowing they are sovereign. Blessings on your efforts!


    • Thank you for your response to my article. Indeed, my goal is awakening in God by fueling the fire of faith… and doing it by discussing how faith is woven into our everyday lives, so people can relate to it. I find that the true Power of faith rests in us to share our humble thoughts, actions, ideas and hope with others to witness the multiplying power of goodness in God. A synergy of sanctity, if you will. God bless you.
