Become Like Children!
Wow! Did you hear the scripture reading today? Jesus told His disciples to "change and become like children, or you will never enter the kingdom of heaven." Jesus teaches us here that YOU carry a special gift of great importance and have the ability to share it with grown ups!
So, what is the special gift?
What do you think Jesus meant by, "become like children?"
What could a grown up learn from you?
Spend some time talking with your family about what you think
Jesus was talking about.
Earlier in the story!
Earlier in the scripture the Disciples were full of worry and asking lot's of questions. When children came along to see Jesus they only wanted to be near and to play with Him. The Disciples tried to shew the children away and Jesus told them that the children were just as important, to never send them away and in fact to, "change and become like children!" Jesus taught His disciples to be trusting and humble just like the children!
Share your gift!
Adults can tend to worry a lot! They have big responsibilities and sometimes it is hard to think through everything and make decisions easily. The next time you see your parents worrying and having a hard day, remind them that God has got it and everything is going to be okay!
Dear God, Help us to all be humble and trusting in You and help us to share Your presence with others. Amen.
