Kitchen Table Devotions

Matthew 18

Day 4

Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 And whoever receives one such child in My name receives Me;   

Matthew 18:4-5

Don’t doubt, depend!  A child depends on his father and mother to supply what is needed.  Their mind is developing, it’s not already determined.  It’s a great place and time to learn about what love is and does.  It’s in that place and time of dependence that we receive from God as we look to Him rather than ourselves for what we need.  We receive Him and we receive all that He has for us.  There’s no muscle here, only meekness from a heart that depends on the Father.  It’s  from this place and time that we learn to live loved.
