People were bringing babies to Jesus so that he would bless them. When the disciples saw this, they scolded them. Then Jesus called them to him and said, “Allow the children to come to me. Don’t forbid them, because God’s kingdom belongs to people like these children. I assure you that whoever doesn’t welcome God’s kingdom like a child will never enter it.”
Questions to Ponder:
Even as an adult, do you feel like a child of God? Do you allow yourself to have the faith of a child ― to keep things uncomplicated and to trust God with your whole heart? If you have forgotten the wonder of your childhood faith, will you try to recapture those feelings today and then bring them into your journey of faith?
Gracious and loving God, thank You for reminding me that I must come to you like a child. Humble me so that I may be able to trust as a child does. Help me to remember that Your love for me is a wondrous gift. Amen.
