Friday, August 21† — Psalm 102:23–28
Judges 5; Luke 19:11–27
You are wearied with your many consultations. Isaiah 47:13
The disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” He called a child, whom he put among them, and said, “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 18:1-3
May our child-like curiosity never lead us astray, great Teacher. May we be attentive to your words and always ready to welcome your children into our fellowship. Amen.
