Mark 10:15 – Like Children

Today’s Readings: Lev 24:1‐25:46, Mark 10:13‐31, Ps 44:9‐26, Prov 10:20‐21

Mark 10: 15 “Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”

Last night, Rebecca and I listened outside of Anna’s door as she sang I Love You Lord and Jesus Loves Me in her crib. The beauty of a child’s faith is inspiring to live with. As I type, Anna is hugging my left arm with her whole body and saying quietly – “I love you Daddy.” When was the last time I approached God in that way?

One of my friends was spending time praying over this verse before the Pine Cove mission trip to Costa Rica in January. As he discussed what God was showing him, I learned through him – It is OK to not understand everything about God. We are to approach him with curiosity and faith.

What does receiving the kingdom of God like a child mean to you?

  1. I think receiving the kingdom like a child means receiving it with wonder and aw. His thoughts are not our thought, and his ways are our ways(Isaiah 55:8). Understanding that he cannot be completely understood, makes me realize how powerful he is.
