My son and I had a pillow fight yesterday afternoon. What is it about a pillow fight that is so darn fun? I challenge you to have one with someone and not giggle like a five-year old. It might be impossible.
Fun is infectious.
When my son suggested the pillow fight, I reluctantly agreed. I lacked enthusiasm. However, as soon as those first pillows began flying a transformation occurred.
That pillow fight last night turned out to be one of my favorite moments of the day.
I understand one of the reasons why Jesus stressed to his disciples the importance of becoming more like children when it comes to our faith walk. Adults become fixated on important business… not the pillow fights. But Jesus says, the pillow fight, the one you think distracts from the important is the important.
We need to engage in the moments that seem less than pressing. These details, these interactions, help to shape a relationship into a relationship. Take time to connect with others, that’s the important business.
What pillow fights might you need to make time for today?
