1At that time the disciples came to Jesus and said,
“Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
2And He called a child to Himself and set him before them,
3and said, “Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like
children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
4“Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest
in the kingdom of heaven. 5“And whoever receives one such child
in My name receives Me; 6but whoever causes one of these little
ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to
have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned
in the depth of the sea.
DADs...many love to hear and speak of privileges and glory, who are willing to pass by the thoughts of work and trouble.
But our Lord set a little child before his disciples, solemnly assuring them, that
unless they were converted and made like little children, they could not enter his kingdom.
Wow. A wake up call for me!
My brothers, little children, when very young, do not desire authority, do not regard outward distinctions, are free from malice,
are teachable, and willingly dependent on their parents.
How sad is it, that as we grow older, we allow our joy to be hardened by experiences and other people?
It is true that we as children soon begin to show other personality traits, and other ideas are taught to us at an early age;
conformed in a world with other expectations for us!
DADs, God wants us to be daily renewed in the spirit of our minds, that we may become simple and humble, as little children,
and willing to be the least of all.
We must find time to ensure we stay free from the chains of pride and worldly deception.
That we maintain our connection with God, and reveal His compassion and love unconditionally as a little child.
DADs…let us daily study this subject, and examine our own spirits.
I love you my brothers.
Live and Play fully today!
Like God’s child on a playground!
Full of joy and anticipation!
To God be the glory.
DADs…do not stand on the sidelines of life…get off the bench…“get in the game”…
Today is game day…and so is every day…God gives you!
So…C’mon DADs…Suit Up!
