Children make every holiday and celebration an exciting event by their unabashed joy . Even mundane trips to the grocery store become a great adventure with children. They see life with wonder and amazement that has its way of wearing off of us as we move more years further from childhood.
Maybe that is why Jesus tells us to become like a little child.
15 I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” 16 And He took the children in his arms, put His hands on them and blessed them.
The same joy that children receive gifts with unabashed joy is the way we should receive the kingdom of God. The kingdom of God is salvation and the everyday living in His presence. The kingdom of God is His rule and reign.
So go ahead and be like a little child today. Each person that has Jesus as their highest treasure can shout out with joy that you got FORGIVENESS, GRACE, THE HOLY SPIRIT, PEACE, VICTORY, LOVE and many other good gifts.
What gift from the LORD are you celebrating today?
