Light for My Path Daily Devotion
Some people began bringing little children to Jesus so that he would touch them. But the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said, “Let the little children come to me! Do not hinder them, because the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Amen I tell you: Whoever will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” And he took the little children in his arms, laid his hands on them, and blessed them. (Mark 10:13-16 EHV)
Hymn ELH 177:1-2 I Am Jesus’ Little Lamb
I am Jesus’ little lamb,
Ever glad at heart I am,
For my Shepherd gently guides me,
Knows my need, and well provides me,
Loves me every day the same,
Even calls me by my name.
Day by day, at home, away,
Jesus is my Staff and Stay.
When I hunger, Jesus feeds me,
Into pleasant pastures leads me;
When I thirst, He bids me go
Where the quiet waters flow.
Jesus, my Savior, remind me each day that You came to save not only me, but all people—including little children. Forgive my sins and help me to live as an example especially to children. Let them see the joy and peace that are mine because of the forgiveness You earned for me. Amen.
