On the Level with Babies

My son was crawling around the floor today, at the gym on the church campus, and I got down and crawled alongside of him.
He loved it, it made him cackle and squeal with delight.
What an image isn't it?
Here I am, a student of physics. An engineer. Advanced degrees, tremendous learning, great ability to think. Not just an adult but one who sees clearly enough to teach others, with gray hairs and all, throwing it all away, crawling around on the floor, living in the moment, just to make him laugh.

And the condescension of God is far greater still, and yet even less dignified.
