Christmas — As Children!

Day 2225: May your Sunday be a blessed one . . .

Scripture: Jesus said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”  Matthew 18:3  

Thoughts/questions: We’ve all either been this person or have seen them in action like my grandson last Christmas – so excited to open their Christmas presents that they can’t sleep well the night before and then attack those packages to see their gifts!

God gives us gifts EVERY day and Jesus taught us to become like children. So put those two together, and each morning we should wake up from expectant sleep and eagerly await the gifts God has in store for us that day!

Daily we receive mercy – not getting what we deserve; grace – getting much more than we do deserve; love – unconditional and accepting; the Fruit of the Spirit – love, joy peace, patience, goodness, kindness, gentleness, faithfulness,and self-control; God’s presence – unbelievable; forgiveness – without which, big trouble; strength to face the daily challenges – much needed! AND so many more including life itself!!!

Let’s all become like children!!!

Suggested prayer: Father God, may I become like a child and relish all of Your gifts . . .
