Kingdom of Heaven is for Children
- Kingdom of Heaven is for Children
Today's sermon is about Matthew Chapter 18 where there is a recorded
event where Jesus uses children among the crowd to emphasize an
important lesson: the quality of children ought to emulated.
There is some variety of which qualities He was emphasizing, but one
which is mentioned today is humility. But it is often overlooked that,
in Matthew's gospel, it is not only the manner we approach the kingdom
of heaven, but also how we should receive others.
Entering the Kingdom of Heaven is a present moment dilemma. As we grow
up in the ways of the world, we lose the very things we need to know
God and be with Him.
Please pray for Fr. John Brian who continues to encourage us in the
continuing development of Christian spirituality.
