Today’s Reading: Luke 18
“Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” Luke 18:17
Have you ever watched a movie with kids or watched their face when they see a new toy, their family, or almost anything? They can’t contain their joy! They are instantly amazed at things that we take for granted. They laugh at silly and simple jokes.
And when it comes to the kingdom of God, they learn and sing with no hesitation. I’ve led worship at churches and I’ve led at camps, and let me tell you, the kids blow the roof off with their singing within the first couple words. They can’t help but sing with excitement and volume!
My simple challenge to you today is to receive the kingdom of God like a little child. Worship the Lord with excitement and a childlike faith and come before him in wonder of knowing that God sent his Son as a little baby to eventually die for us.
Take some time to pray and just soak in the wonder of the Gospel. Continually ask God to help you be amazed and not take his love for granted.
