Read Mark 10:13-16.

Devotion by: Shannon Dailey
Christ and the Children

This story is repeated three times in the Bible. In Matthew, Mark, and Luke. Why? I had a teacher once tell me that if an author wants you to really get something, they will repeat that information several times. I think that is the case here.

Have you ever seen a child get excited about something? A new toy or animal, or a trip somewhere? Excitement shows all over them, and they can’t contain it. I think that’s what God wants us to be like in His presence. “Receive the Kingdom of God like a child, or you will not enter.”
