Children get so excited as Christmas approaches! They may drive their teachers almost insane sometimes, but with a bit of positive outlook and lots of God’s love and mercy toward them, their joy can be contagious!
Today, I was at my daughter’s base school watching and helping with their play practice.
A lot of the children were having troubles focusing, but some of them were really doing well, and their smiles made it so worth it to have been there!
Jesus told us that we should become more like little children. Could it be that maybe we would light up our world a little more if we would take steps in that direction?
“But Jesus called the children to Him and said, ‘Let the little children come to Me, and do not hinder them! For the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who does not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.'” Luke 18:16,17 BSB
Today I am thankful for the joyful, excited smiles of children and that Jesus loved me when I was a child, and He still does today!
