2/25/11 - Accept The Kingdom of God Like A Child

Mark 10:13-16

People were bringing children to Jesus that he might touch them,
but the disciples rebuked them.
When Jesus saw this he became indignant and said to them,
“Let the children come to me; do not prevent them,
for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these.
Amen, I say to you,
whoever does not accept the Kingdom of God like a child
will not enter it.”
Then he embraced the children and blessed them,
placing his hands on them.


When we were children, we have full faith in our parents. We depended on our parents for everything, down to the most basic of needs. We trusted them completely. We knew they were always looking out for us, even when they disciplined us.

That's how we're supposed to look at the Kingdom of God. Complete dependence and complete trust. Even when we don't understand.
