Topic: Faith Like A Child's? [Tuesday 10, October 2017]

Memorise: "And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven." - Matthew 18:3

Read: Matthew 18:1-6

1 At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?

2 And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,

3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

5 And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.

6 But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

Bible In One Year: Matthew 21-22. Hymn: Sing Hymn 12 - My Hope Is Build On Nothing Less

MESSAGE:

The child-like faith us what a person requires, not only to make it to Heaven but to also enjoy his days on the earth. What is then required of us is to pray for the kind of faith that is comparable with that of a child. The first thing about a little child is that he is very trusting. In my living room several years ago, there used to be a portrait of a little child looking so innocent with the inscription; "No Problem".

Another characteristic trait of little children is that they forgive easily. Unlike teenagers and adults who keep malice, children forgive and forget the wrong done to them almost immediately after it is done. Children fulfil this biblical instruction freely. Children could be very generous with their things too except in unusual occasions. Without knowing the spiritual implication of their actions, children are tender hearted with their peers. This is exactly what God wants from us.

The instruction that comes from our Lord is simply saying that before we pray, we must forgive! I pray that you will find grace to forgive and be kind hearted in Jesus' Name.

Prayer Point: Father, please help my faith and transform me to be able to forgive freely and be tender hearted in Jesus' Name.
