Seriously? That is what I was told when I started strolling Bambina into a local upscale resale shop earlier today! I walked out of there thinking, “Then you don’t allow my money, either.” I’m not sure that I can say I will NEVER visit this store, but it will be many years before I am even tempted to…and by then, they will probably be out of business!
Contrast that with Jesus attitude toward the children in Matthew:Matthew 18:2-5 says
- 2.He called a little child and had him stand among them. 3.And he said: "I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5. “And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.
Then, when we got together with CD afterward, she asked if I had read her latest blog post on childlike faith! I thought how much that is like God to gently remind me that even though, for just a moment, I was angry with a worldview, His view is so much higher than mine – and the world’s!
Not only is Bambina accepted by Christ, when I humble myself and approach His throne, I am fully accepted there!
Praise God from whom all blessings flow….like acceptance!
