Passage and Message:
Matthew 18: 3-4 –> 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.”
  • The disciples of Jesus had asked him who is the greatest in heaven.  After which he called a little child to him and said the passage above.  We hear people say to have a “childlike faith in God,” which generally comes from this verse.  I was reminded of this verse with an experience I had with my 5-year-old boy two weekends ago.  He was playing at beach by the rough waters with no life vest on, and I was standing next to him.  He was fearless in the rough waves knowing that I was there to grab him if the current was too strong and he fell. He trusted that I would be there for him if something happened.  I relate this to how we should be the same with God in our faith.  It’s easier said than done because we become more cynical with age and we change as we have responsibilities.  The challenge is to go to God as a child – being humble, meek, dutiful and letting go and trusting him fully.
  • Building off of Breach’s message of his experience in San Francisco and call to action from this past Saturday’s work, the challenge for this week is one act of kindness to start making changes in our community.  It could be as simple as helping someone with their groceries or donating money.  Whatever the case may be, try to do this and post your act of kindness to Slack.  The idea is strength in numbers and that if we start doing this as individuals, others in our group will catch on and continue this, and we can start making positive changes in our community.
