It can be rather embarrassing to look back upon the silly mistakes of one’s youth. The question sometimes comes to mind, why would God put up with such an ignorant fool? What good is a dummy know-nothing, anyway?
Thankfully, God regards the intentions where man regards the actions. Silly mistakes are really not so bad if the intention was benign. Besides, are the old sages really that much better than their younger counterparts? What is the difference between five and fifty when compared to infinity? God is the measure of all goodness, and even the most brilliant human intellect is barely distinguishable from an ignorant infant.
Also, love is all that God requires, and children know how to love.
