This reflection is taken from my book, Pro-Life Reflections for Every Day, which is available for purchase at: ProLifeReflectionsForEveryDay.org
“The disciples asked, ‘Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? Then Jesus beckoned a child to come to him, placed it in their midst, and said, ‘Amen, I say to you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven’” (Matthew 18:1-3).
Reflection: It is an understatement to say that children are loved by God or important to Him. They are central, and they exemplify certain virtues and attitudes God wants us to have.
Prayer: Holy Spirit, keep our minds clear about who is most important, and keep our hearts focused on the children, that we may learn from them. Amen.
