Let The Children Come
“… for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs.” Mark 10:1-16 The earliest gift I remember receiving as a child was a green bicycle for Christmas. Although it came with training wheels on it, that following summer my father took my sister and I to the parking lot of a neighborhood school, removed the training wheels and taught us to ride a two-wheeler! I was 4 years old. As I think back on it the true gift was the look on my dad’s face. He had a tremendous smile as I rode all around that lot. I think the Kingdom of God is full of images just like that one. Let us not deny the Father every opportunity to smile.
Oh my!! What a great word picture!! To think of the Lord with a smile on His face for something I might have done!!! WOW!!! Thank you for such a lovely encouragement this day!!
Desiring to serve Him well,
You are very welcome. I don’t have a lot of stories about my dad but the reading helped me to remember this one and I am so glad I did.
Thanks, All praise and glory to God!
