Let the Children Come

This may be the tiniest blue gill ever caught at our dock.
This sweet grandson had an ear infection and strep throat,
but was still trying to hang in there with us and make the most of his Virginia visit.

July 23-24
"Jesus said, 'Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.'"
Matthew 19:14 

Jesus is not physically walking on the earth today in His bodily form, yet he is residing in those of us, who have accepted him as Savior, in the form of the Holy Spirit. We need to live our lives in a way that little ones want to come to us.  From there, we need to build relationship and be Christlike to these children showering them with love and Good News!

One of our daughter's has no husband or children.  She has lived abroad and far away from family for many years now.  When she is home and around her nieces and nephews, they flock to her.  It's a beautiful example of the love of Christ radiating out of someone.
