Vital Step to a Radiant Faith-Accept Children with God’s Love

September 21st, 2023 No comments

JOHN SHIRK – In the Year to Shine, today’s Vital Step to a Radiant Faith is to accept children with God’s love.

Jesus called a little child and had him stand among His disciples. Then He taught in Matthew 18:5, “Whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.”

Jesus loves children. He demonstrated that in His earthly ministry with His prayers and affection. When the disciples wanted to keep the children away from Jesus, He called the children to come closer.

That is what can happen when we welcome a child in Jesus’ name-whether it’s helping with children’s ministry at church, or by becoming a sponsor for a child in another country to help them with daily necessities. Our loving outreach to them will give them a glimpse of how much Jesus loves them.

Accepting Children with God’s love is a vital step to a Radiant Faith that makes a difference in our world.

Key Element for Thriving Relationships-Accept Children

August 10th, 2022 No comments

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.
