Key Element for Thriving Relationships-Accept Children

August 10th, 2022

JOHN SHIRK – Today’s Key Element for Thriving Relationships is Acceptance of Little Children.

In Matthew 19:13, the people brought little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked them. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”

This was a great lesson of faith for the disciples to understand that Jesus loves the children of the world, and calls us to accept them.

We can be a voice of hope, truth, and encouragement for children by loving them with a tender heart. Look for opportunities to invest in their lives with the love of Jesus.

Jesus said in Mark 9:37, “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me.”

Acceptance of Little Children is a key element for thriving relationships that honor God.
