Little Children and The Kingdom

There has been a lot of discussion lately on the Kingdom of God. Books have been written. Articles and blogs have been written, and sermons have been preached. I think that is great, as we ought to have a good understanding of the Kingdom in which we belong.

I have been reminded recently that the best way to understand the Kingdom of God is to spend a little time with a small child. It was Jesus after all who said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." (Matthew 19:14)

Yesterday my son Benjamin demonstrated the kind of faith that I believe God desires to see from us. He and Robin had plans to visit Grandma and Grandpa for the day. Robin had to break the news to him that Grandma was sick therefore they would not be able to go. His response..."Let's pray for her mommy." He then grabbed her hands and they prayed for Grandma. No sooner had they said amen, Benny declared, "Let's go!" That is faith! That is the kind of faith that the Kingdom of God belongs to.

We have much to learn.
