Today is the 27th day of May. It is not a public holiday but virtually all kids aren’t at school today. School activities are only suspended for the kids for them to relax, play and get ready for normal activity tomorrow.
While the adults are at their workplace, claiming to be responsible and no more kids, they forget that they would always be someone’s child. Did you just fall from the sky like a UFO or did you metarmorphise from a chemistry or biology laboratory?
Jesus in Matthew 19:14 told his disciples that the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to Children. Earlier on He had told them that “… I assure you that unless you change and become like Children, you will never enter the Kingdom of Heaven” (Matthew 18:3 GNB). We must humble ourselves and see things like little children so as to enter Heaven.
Is it difficult to be a child? A child forgives easily, praises heartily, depends wholly on The Father, seeks to know more, can be patient, learns quickly, isn’t bothered of earthly possesion, never hates and loves easily. A child would talk about his friends to his friends; have you talked about Jesus in recent time? Is He even your friend?
Even as Adult, lets handle children with love. Let us not provoke them to wrath as is said in Epheisans 6:4. Receive them like Jesus, bless them, get something for them that would have a positive impact on them; a gadget wouldn’t be bad as pointed out by KC Emenike on Echo Blog (http://echo.com.ng/2013/its-childrens-day-my-thoughts/).
For the kids, Ephesians 6:1-3 is for you. Obey in the Lord. Love God too.
Read these scriptures today: Ephesians 6:1-4; Matthew 18:1-6; Matthew 19:13-15.
Be a child, bless a child. Everyday is Children’s day. Show Love.
