The Greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven

After a rather tiresome and long day with my kiddos yesterday, I was encouraged and re-focused this morning in my daily Bible reading.

At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked,
"Who is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven?"
He called a little child and had him stand among them.
And he said: "I tell you the truth, unless you change and
become like little children, you will never enter the
kingdom of Heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself
like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven.
And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name
welcomes me. But if anyone causes one of these little ones
who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a
large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in
the depths of the sea."

Matthew 18:1-6 NIV

What an awesome responsibility we have as parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, teachers...

It is such a huge responsibility. I am so looking forward to reading the New Testament! I am loving the Bible in 90 days program, though. It's fast, but when I've tried to read the Bible in a year, I've given up. I need to see progress quickly or I have a very hard time staying committed.
