Bring, not hinder

March 4

Daily Bible Reading: Mark 10:1 – 31

Verse of the Day: Mark 10:14 – “But when Jesus saw it, he was moved with indignation, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me; forbid them not: for to such belongeth the kingdom of God.”

Are we guilty as the disciples of trying to make the way to Jesus complicated and for those who are what we would consider appropriate to come to Him? In the preceding verse, it states that Jesus was moved with indignation at them. The Greek word used here is made up of two words that mean “much grief.”

We can make it hard for someone to come to Jesus by being in his or her way. We could do that by our actions or our words. We can set standards that they could not meet, or we could simply not tell them about Him.

Today, watch whether we are standing between someone and Jesus, and seek to remove any hindrance from their way.

Prayer: Jesus, I do not want to cause You grief, help me to bring others to You. Amen.
