THROUGH THE BIBLE IN THREE YEARS
Mom came home from the doctor and put her 4-year-old
son on her lap.
She said, "Honey, you're gonna have a new baby brother soon.
You will be able to help. You can bring me a clean diaper, hold
the baby bottle, and even bring the pacifier."
The little boy looked up at his mom and asked,
"And, just what are you gonna be doin' while I do all that WORK?"
1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying,
Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst
3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and
become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
Light from the WORD.
When dandelions appear, I see weeds that can take over my yard.
Kids see flowers for Mom, or fun blowing white fluff.
When I see a mud puddle, I see dirty shoes, clothes and floors that
have to be cleaned.
Kids see rivers to cross, dams to build and worms with which to play.
I wonder: Are kids here for us to teach, or to learn from?
Our Lord,Jesus, used children as an example for adults being saved!
We are to be innocent, loving, trusting and obedient: like CHILDREN!
For a Christian, each day brings new experiences.
We should meet them all with the anticipation of goodness from our Lord!
When the disciples questioned who should be the greatest in
heaven (besides Jesus, of course), He answered them with a
ALL who come in genuine surrender to Jesus are GREAT in the
kingdom of heaven!
However, NO ONE comes to the kingdom of heaven WITHOUT
surrender to Jesus!
A little child comes at the beckoning of his/her elders.
A little child does the bidding of his/her elders.
A little child is reflective of those who have genuinely surrendered
This is what it takes to get IN heaven.
And ALL who come are considered "great" in His kingdom.
