MY DAILY COVENANT WITH GOD DEVOTIONAL
Devotion for Children’s Day Wednesday May 27, 2020
Topic: Great Qualities in Children
Text: Matthew 18:1 – 6
We rejoice with our children on this day though it will not hold with the usual funfair due to Covid-19 pandemic but at least for being alive there is every reason to thank God. We thank God for their lives and pray that they will grow in the fear and knowledge of God. They will not become thorns on our fleshes in Jesus name.
Greatness in the view of men differs much from greatness in the sight of God. Jesus set a little child before His disciples, solemnly assuring them, that unless they were converted and made like little children, they could not enter His kingdom.
Children do not desire authority, do not regard outward distinctions, are free from malice, are teachable, and willingly dependent on their parents. These are some great qualities in children that are suitable for God’s Kingdom. “It is true that they soon begin to show other dispositions, and other ideas are taught them at an early age; but these are marks of childhood, and render them proper emblems of the lowly minds of true Christians” according to Matthew Henry Concise Commentary.
Surely we need to daily renew our minds that we may become simple and humble, as little children, and willing to be the least of all. How humble and teachable are you? Do you desire to be in authority and for what purpose – the glory of it or for service of humanity?
Let us learn from children’s character the virtue of humility, being docile, submissive and obedient. We should daily study this subject of humility, and examine our own spirits.
Food for Thought: Many characteristics of little children are sources of instruction to mankind.
Memory Verse: Matthew 18:3
Prayer: Grant unto me a humble, submissive and obedient spirit worthy of your Kingdom O Lord my God in Jesus name.
