Mark Day 28
Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” 16 And he took them in his arms and blessed them, laying his hands on them. Mark 10:15-16
We all need the heart of a child to make the most of this life. Children are so ready to believe and to receive the love of another. That’s what makes them so vulnerable and so valuable at the same time. They are ready to receive and respond to love. We were all there at one time or another but then life happens in a fallen world. Pretty soon people are shewing us away rather than showing us in. After a few bad voices and wrong messages, the door of our heart becomes guarded rather than open. When our heart becomes hard to enter, our head becomes harsh toward anyone who would enter. Relationships just don’t work with a hard heart, not loving relationships. Life becomes difficult and deserted with a hard heart. Run to Jesus! The only way to enjoy a soft heart is to believe. Run to Jesus! Let Him take you, hold you and speak over you. That experience will melt the hardest heart and let you live in love. Run to Jesus! When He speaks it won’t sound like some sort of love, it will be real love. When He touches us, it won’t be some sort of love, it will be pure love. But we must be willing to receive His love by being willing to humble our hearts to come to Him who is waiting for us at each and every moment in this life.
