“I assure you: Whoever does not welcome the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” (Luke 18:17)
How does a child welcome the kingdom of God? They do so the same way they would welcome a gift. First, they generally trust the one giving it to them. Then, they accept it. They accept it with joy. They accept it with joy as theirs. They accept it with joy as theirs and then tell their friends. They accept it with joy as theirs, tell their friends, and then take their friends to the giver to see if they can get it, too.
Jesus says that whoever wants to enter the kingdom of God must welcome and enter the kingdom in the way a child would.
Lord, Being in Your kingdom is one of our greatest joys. Help us to share the good news of Your kingdom with others. Amen.
