Wednesday, May 4 — Psalm 57:7-11
Leviticus 25:18–55; Mark 8:14–21
Behold, children are a gift of the Lord. Psalm 127:3 NASB
Jesus took a little child and put it among them; and taking it in his arms, he said to them, “Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes not me but the one who sent me.” Mark 9:36-37
Dearest Lord, the sounds of new life in our church and in our families bring us joy and the weight of responsibility. Help us to welcome all of your children into our hearts as you welcome us into your heart. Amen.
