Say YES! – Good News for August 14

14 08 2010

Matthew 19:13-15

Children were brought to Jesus that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples rebuked them, but Jesus said, “Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them; for the Kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” After he placed his hands on them, he went away.

The Daily Path: Humans are in such a hurry to grow up. We move all too quickly from the stage of youthful wonder and potential to a life of driven rebuking. A life of No! No! No! It’s sad that we can’t retain more of the child within. It would be a more joyful world and perhaps a little closer to the Kingdom if we could.

Leave your rebuking behind. Embrace the wonder of your inner child. Driven performance is not Job One. Let the acquired baggage go. Allow God to touch your heart. Go to Him despite what others would have you do. Say YES.
