In Luke chapter 10, verse 21, Jesus says, “O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, thank you for hiding these things from those who think themselves wise and clever, and revealing them to the childlike. Yes, Father, it pleased you to do it this way.”
This is a theme that we see over and over again in the Bible. Jesus tells us elsewhere in the Gospels that we must become like little children to enter Heaven, and many times in the Bible we are told how useless the wisdom of mankind is when compared with the vast and complex mind of God.
When I was living life as a secular adult, I cherished human wisdom. I don’t have a mind for the complex math that understanding scientific theories requires, but I practically worshiped people that do. I wanted to be thought of as intelligent, and I had bought into the belief that human intelligence can save us.
Jesus taught something very different in his time here, though; he commanded us to love others as ourselves, and to love God with all our hearts. His entire teaching to us was based on love, not on intelligence, but on the state of our hearts. Now that I have connected with the love of Christ and accepted his gift of Salvation through repentance and forgiveness of sin, I understand how futile it is to try and understand the universe through our limited human minds.
The hope for humanity is truly in accepting the love of Jesus Christ and channeling this love for others through our hearts. It is love that will change the world, and the best scientific innovations, such as those that help the environment, are all based on love at heart. Scientific innovations can also be incredibly harmful to humans, and can be advanced by people with nothing but greed as a motivating factor.
Jesus knew this, and that is why he tells us that God blessed the childlike with the wisdom of God. Children are incredibly loving beings by nature, and Christ makes clear in these verses that it is our love, not our feeble human intelligence, that holds the key to our Salvation.
