Playing Peek-a-boo With Jesus

Babies are stupid. Let's not sugarcoat this any longer. In case you need proof, take the game of peek-a-boo as the perfect example. You put your hands in front of your face and then remove your hands. That baby will be surprised every. single. time.

They're not smart enough to be faking it. They are genuinely surprised to see you show up in front of them. So, I guess it's a good thing babies generally have very strong hearts. Because I would play peek-a-boo for a long time and my babies would just keep laughing with delightful surprise. 

Now, perhaps I was a bit strong when I opened up by saying babies are stupid. Because, truth be told, I am dumber. Don't laugh, because you might be right there with me. The Apostle Paul wrote the following to the Church in Colosse;

For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. ~Colossians 3:3

If it's not about me, I'm supposed to remain hidden in Christ. It's kind of like a divine game of peek-a-boo. God's is the face that should be seen, but I continue to take the hands away from my face and scream out. 


But, in my most honest moments, I realize that it's not simply that this life is not about me. It's not supposed to be about me. So, I'm going to try again and seek out insignificance, so my life can be hidden with Christ in God. 

What about you?
