Eternity Unleashed...


Luke 9:43b-48 (NRSV)

Welcoming little ones

While everyone was amazed at all that he was doing, he said to his disciples, "Let these words sink into your ears: The Son of Man is going to be betrayed into human hands." But they did not understand this saying; its meaning was concealed from them, so that they could not perceive it. And they were afraid to ask him about this saying.

An argument arose among them as to which one of them was the greatest. But Jesus, aware of their inner thoughts, took a little child and put it by his side, and said to them, "Whoever welcomes this child in my name welcomes me, and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me; for the least among all of you is the greatest."

DEVOTION--Today is Saturday Psalmody; the mediation is offered as a psalm from my heart! If you would like a more traditional devotion, please search the archives for a title that appeals to you! (smile)


Welcome little one
your smile reflects light
The Light
of The One who made you!
Your mouth
shares Jesus' smile
Your hands
open wide to friends
and enemies alike
to share Jesus' hug
Your gentle ways
and quickness to forgive
echo The Love of eternity
and grace unbound
Welcome little one
greatest among wo/men
for in your innocence
you love God &
you love neighbor
with wild abandon
You will even run to the stranger
For you are not afraid
You are not afraid...
It would never occur to you
to betray the Savior;
You only wanted to play
to bounce on his knee
Get thrown in the air
With arms outstretched
as He blessed you.
Running away
to share the good news
about The One who loves...
with wild abandon.
Welcome little one
bearer of Christ
Immortal one
Eternity unleashed.
