Unless You Turn

At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 18:1-3)

Sometimes we just need to be reminded that there is more to life than our obligations and to-dos:

Unless you turn from . . .

In peace I will lie down and sleep,
for you alone, Lord,
make me dwell in safety. Psalm 4:8 NIV.

With Tuesday Blessings,

I am a writer and counselor, who embraces joy and holds tight to hope. I live with my husband Ken, of 44 years, and he is the love of my life. I enjoy inspirational and devotional writing, home decor, gardening, and being in community. My husband and I are missionaries to children in Washington State, and love the privilege of being with them.

    1. Yes. Homer, when I look at children I see those who are open and trusting, authentic, and willing to love; even the children living in difficult circumstances. They are unfettered. I love the peace of the Little girl in the wagon for that reason. Blessings to you and your wife.
