Psalm 8:2 MSG
Nursing infants gurgle choruses about you;
toddlers shout the songs
That drown out enemy talk,
and silence atheist babble.

This reminds me of the story of the Emperor’s New Clothes. Children can see through fashion, adult pretentiousness and clever arguments, and see things as they really are. Children are still full of awe at the wonder of the world, not yet tainted by cynicism and stress. They haven’t yet learnt to worry about others’ opinions. Jesus called his disciples to be child-like, perhaps this is what he means.

Jesus, renew my mind that I might see you and your world afresh!
