AND YOU SHALL BE MY DISCIPLES – Lesson #29
- Despise Not Little Ones
“See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven continually see the face of My Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 18:10).
WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
Read some other passages to get the context about how God considers the “little ones”:
Matthew 18:6 but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble, it would be better for him to have a heavy millstone hung around his neck, and to be drowned in the depth of the sea.”
Matthew 18:14 “So it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones perish.”
Matthew 18:3 and said, “Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 19:14 But Jesus said, “Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
Mark 9:37 “Whoever receives one child like this in My name receives Me; and whoever receives Me does not receive Me, but Him who sent Me.”
Children are most precious in God’s sight. And to despise on of these little ones, to condemn, disdain, or think little or nothing of them, will incur the wrath of God.
Jesus tells us that angels in heaven are continually reporting about the welfare of these to the Father in heaven. They are always on His Mind.
They are to be loved, nurtured, trained and brought up in the admonition of the Lord.
So it is that abuse, neglect or ill treatment of these little ones, of any kind, is an abomination to God. Abortion is particular stench to God and offenders can fully expect the wrath of God to fall upon them.
Now, it is your turn:
HOW MUST YOU DO IT?
HOW YOU MUST TEACH IT?
Your Brother and Friend,
A PERSONAL NOTE: So it is with the travesty of abortion the United States. Anyone who stands by and does nothing is complicit in this atrocity before God.
