Thursday night at work we had preschool graduation. After the singing and the presentations of graduation hats, certificates, and coloring books the graduates were asked what they wanted to do when they grew up. The first few answers were pretty standard: firefighter, race car driver, policman...but then came Cora. Five year old Cora said "I want to go accross the ocean and tell people about Jesus."
“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them. ~Mark 10:14-16
He took a little child whom he placed among them. Taking the child in his arms, he said to them, “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me.” ~Mark 9:36-37
