TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“I tell you solemnly,

anyone who does not welcome the kingdom of God like a little child

will never enter it.”

.

– Mark 10:15 (JB)

REFLECTION…

.

Our Lord stresses

that a Christian has to become like a child

to enter the

Kingdom of Heaven.

.

Our Lord’s words express simply and graphically the key doctrine of man’s divine sonship:

God is our Father and we are His sons and daughters, His children,

and our entire religion is summed up in the relationship of a child with the good Father in Heaven.

.

This awareness of God as Father involves a sense of dependence on our Heavenly Father,

and a trusting abandonment to His loving providence

– much in the same way a child trusts its father or mother;

the humility of recognizing that we can do nothing by ourselves;

and simplicity and sincerity, which make us straightforward and honest

in our dealings with both God…and man.

.

QUOTE…

.

“To be little

you have to believe as children believe,

to love as children love,

to abandon yourself as children do…,

to pray as children pray”

.

– St. Josemaria Escriva

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

Abba, Father, I love You!
