A Daily Devotion for Friday, January 21

Matthew 18:3

And he said, “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”

Children are growing and changing every day. They are learning and trying new things. They trust and love wholeheartedly. They ask questions and they listen to the answers because they really want to know. I believe these are some of the reasons Jesus urged his followers to be like children. I am not sure I have ever applied this verse to myself. What might I give up, to be more childlike? Maybe I could start with my stubborn belief that I am stuck with my faults? If I really accept that I am growing and changing, why not believe I can leave some bad habits behind?

Father God, you have urged us to be like children when we follow you. I am wondering today what this would look like for me. Help me to follow you with my whole heart, and my whole mind, wide open and ready to learn more. Amen

Becky, transforming
