A Light to My Path (Proverbs 22:6 and Matthew 19:13-14)

Our Scripture for the week ahead is Proverbs 22:6 and Matthew 19:13-14:

Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. (Proverbs 22:6)
Then people brought little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked them. Jesus said, β€œLet the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:13-14)

Question for Reflection:

  • What attributes of childhood are especially aligned with what Jesus calls "the kingdom of heaven"?
