‘Then people brought little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked them. Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” When he had placed his hands on them, he went on from there. ‘ 
God cares about each one of His children. He doesn’t require us to be ‘old enough’, ‘mature enough’, ‘advanced enough’, or ‘educated enough’ to approach Him. The kingdom of heaven belongs to those who come to God with the simple love and trust of a child.  Jesus took intentional time out of His day, to express His love for the smallest of His children. 
I don’t have to put on airs with God. I don’t have to pretend to be someone that I’m not, or try to impress him. He sees me exactly as I am, and loves me anyway. He desires for me to come to him with the simplicity of a child, with simple trust in his unconditional love for me.  He desires for me to be a conduit of his love to those around me–not trying to filter or limit who is ‘qualified enough’ to approach him.
He took time out of his day to show love to the least, and he expects no less of me.
This week, I need to watch for opportunities to care for those whose hearts are ready to approach him…whoever they may be.
God, thank you that your love for me is not based on my qualifications! Thank you for loving me unconditionally. Help me to be a conduit of your love to the world around me, and to always be ready to introduce people to you–no matter who they are.
