Childlike humility

RE Verse reading–Luke 18:9-17 (day seven)  “Whoever humbles himself as this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”  (Matthew 18:4)  Our RE Verse reading this week is familiar.  Jesus defending the children.  Allowing them access.  Permanently elevating their value in the church.  The primary truth, however, is not about children.  The Lord’s main focus was on adults, teaching them (us) humility.  How do children illustrate the absence of pride?  Soft hearts.  Easily moldable characters.  Could we get back to this place with God?  Jesus believed that pride is the problem and humility is the solution. In a few hours we will meet together for worship.  I have  great expectation that the Lord will use this passage to teach us “the path of life”.  “This is the one to whom I will look, to him who is humble and contrite of spirit and who trembles at my word.”  (Isaiah 66:2)  Praying for childlike hearts and the blessing that comes with it.
