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, “Let 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"?
