Peeling away the Layers – v3

Need to become like children
peeling away the layers;
Our experiences clouding
our vision of God

The lies of the world
layer upon layer;
Keeping us from truth
the simplicity of God

Love alone,
this is the message;
All of the teachings
boiling down to this

The guile of those older
older than young children;
Trying to read more
into everything

God calling to us
come to me as a child;
Simple and humble,
come, sit at My feet

The lesson of the greatest
in God’s heavenly kingdom
stripping away all pretense;
Coming to Him humbly
as a young child
