Today's Meditation

WEDNESDAY, April 1                           Frederick D. Maurice

Mark 10:15 Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it.

None of us are sure of how old we are—seven or eight years old, maybe. We sleep against the walls of other peoples’ homes. Sometimes they see us in the mornings, and we get a little bit of breakfast, but they don’t ever talk to us.

Today Jesus arrives in town with his friends to talk to the people. He interrupts the grownup’s angry commands that we should go away and leave the adults alone. Let the little children come to me, he says. His kindness is unlike any we have ever known.
