“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Matthew 18:3

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“Truly I tell you,

unless you change and become like children,

you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”

.

– Matthew 18:3 (NRSV)

REFLECTION…

.

When Jesus tells us to be like little children,

He is emphasising that we must change,

remove our misplaced pride and arrogance

…and become humble.

.

A little child is not capable of hating anyone,

and is totally innocent of vice,

particularly pride – the worst vice of all.

A little child is simple, humble, and full of trust.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

“If you ask me what is the essential thing in the religion and discipline of Jesus Christ,

I shall reply: first humility, second humility and third humility"”

.

– St. Augustine

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Save me from myself, Lord Jesus.

Hold my hand and guide me.
