Calm the Chaos

a close-knit group of smiling children

And He said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”—Matthew 18:3–4 (NIV)

Life doesn’t always make sense. You can get frustrated and weary trying to figure out why something happened, or how God could allow it. You can drive yourself crazy mulling over ways to fix things, or you can put your focus on having genuine child-like faith.

Today's Prayer:

Heavenly Father, help me to relinquish control and lean on You! May childlike faith guide me all of my life.
