Luke 18:17 “Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child will not enter it at all.” (NASB)
"So what do you do in there?" As I pulled up to the church to get ready for Bible study, there he sat... a young boy with his mom and puppy dog. I said hello and that's when he asked, "What do you do in there?" I introduced myself to his mom, and then began to speak to the boy. "I said would you like to come in?" "Oh no," his mom relied, "We have the dog." I said, "It's okay." So, they followed me in. Again, the young boy asked, "So, what do you do in here?" As I began to share with him about our church, he kept asking questions: ... and what about this room and that room, what are all the chairs for, etc. Today's verse speaks of receiving the Kingdom of God like a child. This little boy was so inquisitive; so, wanting to learn more about our church, about Jesus, about what a Bible study is. I couldn't help but think I wished more adults had that kind of inquisitive nature when it comes to God and the things of His Church. Maybe it's time we open the doors of our life and begin to share just "what we do in there!"
