Children embrace each new day with hope and joy because they expect to be loved and welcomed by their parents and/or caregivers.
Our verse in The Mended Heart study for this week is Heb 4:16. ” Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.”
Considering and pondering that, I wanted my very own mini-poster and saw this picture of a grandchild when he was small.
I recalled what Jesus said, in Matthew 18:3, “And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”
We COME to Him (Jesus) expecting to find that mercy and grace to help us in our times of need, just like a little child comes running to those he loves. The child KNOWS they will love him and take care of him.
