(Matthew 18)

“The disciples asked Jesus, ‘Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?’ And Jesus called a child over and placed it in their midst.”

Reflection:
What was it about children that Jesus so loved? Perhaps it was their utter trust and refreshing simplicity.

Prayer:
Lord God, you claim us as your children and we call you “Our Father who art in heaven.” Grace us with those wondrous gifts that are so special to children.
