Childlike Faith

Luke 18:15-17; Mark 10:16

Some thougths as a consequence of reading these verses:

How shall I "receive the kingdom of God as a little child"?

"Little ones to Him belong," says the children's chorus. So let me treat His "property" with carefulness and gentleness. Let me love the objects of His love. Or suffer the consequences.

After all, He said this: "And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me" (Matthew 18:5).

Jesus takes personally how I treat the little ones at school, at church, and even here at home!

Children are more likely to be faithful if they have the father's faithfulness to learn from and reflect.

Here is something in which I have not been faithful:

"We have heard with our ears, O God, our fathers have told us, what work thou didst in their days, in the times of old" (Psalm 44:1).

I am too quiet.
