Jesus (Mark 10)

People were bringing their children to Jesus so that he could touch them. The disciples tried to stop them, but Jesus said, “Let the children come, my kingdom belongs to such as these.”

Once again Jesus encourages us to become more childlike, living and loving with utter simplicity and total trust.

Lord God, why is it that as we age we lose the freshness and charm of our childhood hearts? Teach us the wisdom of remaining forever young.
