As a Child

The Reading for Today: Mark 9:33-50

What makes for true greatness?—a question pondered long and hard by sages from all cultures. Jesus’ disciples enter the dispute, arguing among themselves, forgetting that incarnate Wisdom walks with them. Jesus stops, takes a child, sets him in their midst, and shares the essence of greatness that is wrapped in a child’s heart. Listen as Jesus speaks to your heart.

There is a child inside of you. Would that the evil kings of Judah and Israel would have listened as this child to God’s voice! One wonders just where they “rested”, when they “rested with their fathers.” You will rest in the bosom of the Father forever in heaven, if you live as God’s beloved child now upon earth.
