Jesus loved children and they, in turn, loved Him. Jesus pointed to children as an example of how to live a life in loving obedience to God.

Receiving the kingdom of God like a child means that it is not limited; everything is a gift for a child. Do I receive everything that is good in my life as a gift from God?

Dear Jesus, you come to usher in God’s kingdom. Help me to be a true citizen of heaven by accepting everything as a gift from God.
