And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.
Jesus had brought a little child into the middle of the disciples and told them that the greatest in His Kingdom would be like this child. In fact, unless they changed, humbled themselves and became like children, they would never enter the Kingdom of Heaven (amazing statement!). Jesus then adds verse 5! Welcome this child in my name (with my love, in my spirit, with the heart of God) and you are welcoming me.
Do I want to love Jesus in meaningful ways? Love children in His Name!
Thank You, Lord, for loving children. Thank You for loving me! Fill me with Your love today and allow me to love those little ones in my life, knowing that You are being loved through that. You are the King of the Universe, yet You love the little ones! How awesome and amazing You are!
