S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
Jesus had been discussing marriage with a group of Jewish keepers of the law when people began bringing their children to Him for a blessing. The disciples tried to forbid them, but Jesus said, “Don’t try and stop them, because KIDS Are Our Connection To HEAVEN.”
Up until a certain age, children have no agenda save for the basics: food, sleep, and bodily function. They have a deep need to love and be loved, but don’t really know it yet. Their world is filled with “AWE.” Since they haven’t been around the block yet, so to speak, everything they experience is new. They seem to take what life gives them and keep smiling. I believe heaven is a place where everyone lives in continual “AWE.” The person of Jesus is so attractive on a minute by minute basis that there is a celestial “AWE” in the air at all times. Jesus will take our breath away all day everyday. On the day the disciples rebuked the parents for wanting their kids to be blessed by Jesus, could it be that the little ones were so awestruck by Him that the disciples were jealous? I don’t doubt it for a second. Because “KIDS Are Our Connection To HEAVEN.”
Help me be AWEstruck by You again. Amen
