Today’s Text: Matthew 18:1-10
Sometimes you wonder what the disciples were thinking! In today’s reading we see they come to Jesus asking “who then the greatest in the kingdom of heaven”. This was not uncommon for them (we will see more examples in the days ahead) and most of us struggle with the same ambitions.
Jesus responds by telling them they will not enter the kingdom of heaven unless they become like little children.
What does Jesus warn or teach about little children in addition to the idea that we should become as little children?
What effect do you think this “little children” teaching had on the disciples who were arguing about who was the greatest?
More on this tomorrow.
