Matt. 18:1 At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
Matt. 18:2 Then he called a little child over to sit among the disciples, 3 and said, “I assure you that if you don’t turn your lives around and become like this little child, you will definitely not enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Those who humble themselves like this little child will be the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
Listening to God: When I made you, I wove your spirit together with mine. You will always be my child. The best parent in all the world cannot love you as I can love you. My love is unconditional and unbreakable. When you live into this relationship, you will fulfill the purpose for which you are placed on earth. Why are you always struggling to be independent? I created you to depend on me and your fellow human beings. It is when you let go and become as dependent as a little child I can do the most in your life.
Journal or lift up your prayers and reflections to God.
