Read: Luke 9:21-50
An argument started among the disciples as to which of them would be the greatest. Jesus, knowing their thoughts, took a little child and had him stand beside him. Then he said to them, “Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For he who is least among you all—he is the greatest.” Luke 9:46-48
After Peter declares the Revelation: “You are the Christ the Son of the Living God.” Jesus tells his disciples he must suffer and become the sacrifice. After Jesus is transfigured before the eyes of Peter, James and John, Jesus sets his face toward Jerusalem, where He will destroy the weeks of sin. He will open the way for women and men to know life through His sacrificial death.
Today as your journey, I challenge you to find some little children to observe. Take a moment and watch them play. Take a moment to see the world through their eyes. What is God revealing to you about His Kingdom through their eyes? Now here is the fun part of today’s journey of you a brave enough.
Play today. I challenge you to plaint (finger paint if possible), color, play with play dough, or logos. This is your devotion for today. Take a moment to play like a child, for such is the Kingdom of God. Remember the drawings and color pages that are placed on the refrigerator of loving parents? How can you put your work on the refrigerator? Maybe take a picture and send it to us so we can publish it on the blog. Share your reflections in your journal or the comments on this post. There is something in this journey that reflects the heart of the Kingdom of God.
