Humpday Devo: Children’s Sabbath

This week’s Humpday Devo is about Children’s Spirituality, in recognition of Children’s Sabbath: this weekend.


Scripture

Matthew 18:1-5

At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, ‘Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?’ He called a child, whom he put among them, and said, ‘Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever becomes humble like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.


Poem

Hello and Good-by, by Mary Ann Hoberman

Hello and good-by
Hello and good-by

When I’m in a swing
Swinging low and then high,
Good-by to the ground
Hello to the sky.

Hello to the rain
Good-by to the sun,
Then hello again sun
When the rain is all done.

In blows the winter,
Away the birds fly.
Good-by and hello
Hello and good-by


Music


Prayer

Gracious God, watch over the children. And help us be more like them. AMEN.
