July 13, 2016 (Matt 11:25-27)

“You have hidden these things from the wise and the learned [and] revealed them to the children.” Often, Jesus tells us to be like children or that the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as they. In the society of Jesus’ time, children were on the low-end of the spectrum. They were dependent and not able to carry “their weight” in producing things until they grew up. So, often being called a “child” was a real put down. One thing was certain, children were totally dependent. Jesus wants us to be dependent on God and love Him unconditionally. This reminds us that we need God’s help (called grace) to reach His Kingdom.
