March 1, A.D. 2003

Sirach 17:1-15
Psalm 103:13-18
Mark 10:13-16


A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

Jesus extols the simplicity of faith.

Just imagine, it's Saturday, you've had a long week, a snowstorm, cold rain, your tired -- just as Jesus was tired from traveling. You just want to rest a bit. However, your children missed you all week, Mom working, Dad working, love is shown but not enough time really to speak at length with them. They are all over you, wanting your attention and loving you and you them. What a great testimony to see how Jesus responded to the little children, to see how you respond to your children.

The message is really clear; children just born depend on their every need from their parents feeding them, bathing them, changing diapers and cuddling them. Just as our children depend on us, so we should have faith that Jesus will allow us to have the same faith as the little child. Not thinking or acting as a child, but just having the faith to know that our Lord will care for us today, tomorrow, and forever. Faith! What a great gift! "Let the little children come to Me"!

Lord Jesus,
allow me to have the faith of a little child,
trusting you,
showing you how much I love you.
Amen!
