“The people brought children to Jesus, hoping he might touch them. The disciples shooed them off. But Jesus was irate and let them know it: “Don’t push these children away. Don’t ever get between them and me. These children are at the very center of life in the kingdom. Mark this: Unless you accept God’s kingdom in the simplicity of a child, you’ll never get in.” Then, gathering the children up in his arms, he laid his hands of blessing on them.”
(Mark 10:13-16, Peterson’s The Message)
Caller: “By any chance, do you have a walker for a four year old?” A negative reply almost passed the lips of the receptionist. Instead she said, “I don’t ever remember seeing one before, but let me look.” The little boy had just had surgery on both legs and needed a walker to help him be mobile.
When the big box of medical equipment was examined, there was not one child-sized walker, but six of them.
None of us know when they came in, but they were right on time to meet this request.
