Now, not every little girl wants to be a princess, but many do. I sometimes wonder if this is not a longing for something or someone greater. No man, no matter how wonderful, will be your prince as you imagine him to be. If anything, he will probably turn out to be more like the reverse of the frog becoming a prince—he will turn out to be a frog. Or at least he will only be a man. Perhaps that longing of the little girl’s heart, for a knight in shining armor, is a longing for a “greater prince”—the Prince of Peace and the Lord of Lords Himself. The little girl (and little boy, for that matter) longs for more than any person can bring. They long for God. And one day, our Prince will come. He will establish His kingdom on this earth and that dragon called Satan will be defeated.
And guess what? We will indeed “live happily ever after!”
