Wednesday March 22nd Matthew 18 : 3

"Truly I tell you," He said, "unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
.
As a parent or carer, we love, nourish, respect, encourage and educate our children, knowing we are building a trusting and faithful relationship unconditionally. Within this relationship, we try to provide children with the necessary tools, skills, courage and confidence for them to develop to their full potential. During our nurturing process, we ask children to do something they don't like, agree with or understand, but they do it regardless!

It is the same in our relationship with God. He wants us to love, trust and obey him with an open and faithful heart, unconditionally.

Jesus set a child as an example of humility, the key to everlasting life. Thank you, Lord, for creating us in your image and love.
