This is a re-post of an article from a few years back …and Valentine’s is upon us again! Thank you, all parents, who do your very best in whatever situation you are in. Your unconditional love means more to your child(ren) than you know. Keep up the good work:)
“At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, ‘Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?’ He called a little child and had him stand among them. And he said: ‘ I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.'” Matthew 18:1-5
“Like little children”…hhhmmm. My Study Bible says that means “Trusting and unpretentious.” Og Mandino, one of my favorite authors, says this: “Never will I allow myself to become so important, so wise, so dignified, so powerful, that I forget how to laugh at myself and my world. In this matter I will always remain as a child…”
Can I live as an adult in this world with all of the responsibilities that entails and still see the world as a little child? I hope so.
