"It is better to be a child of God than king of the whole world!" (St. Aloysius Gonzaga) This is a simple but profound insight into real life. Maybe that is why Jesus insisted that we become like little children. Life for a child of God is easier and uncomplicated. Life for one who is king of the whole world is full of fears and distractions, responsibilities and decisions. The child of God most often lives in the present moment, while the king lives in the past and the future. In one sense, as the child of God grows up to be king, the God of the child must still be the God of the king, not the world.
