Doctrine and Covenants 50:40-42

"Behold, ye are little children and ye cannot bear all things now; ye must grow in grace and in the knowledge of the truth.
Fear not, little children, for you are mine, and I have overcome the world, and you are of them that my Father hath given me;
And none of them that my Father hath given me shall be lost."
Doctrine and Covenants 50:40-42

I love this analogy, and it runs through the scriptures... that we are little children.  most of the time we think that we are adults, trying to do all these responsible, adult things... which is good... but it is also good to have our Father remind us about where we are in the eternal scheme of things. :)  as his children, we are quite young... and impetuous. :)  we make mistakes, and want to be perfect.  but you know, it is like a child learning to walk.  we have to give ourselves a break if we fall down occasionally... and then get back up, and do better this time.  the people around us are children too, and we need to be patient with them as well.  and, if we can keep trying like a child does, and trust him the way a child does... then we'll never be lost.  So, today... if we fall down, let's stand up, dust ourselves off and continue to grow in grace and in the knowledge of the truth. :)
