Like a Little Child

Puppy in the grass

You know that fish Peter found last week with the coin in its mouth?

I’m going to go hang out with Peter and see if he’ll share.

What? What do you mean, Peter’s busy?


An argument started among the disciples as to which of them would be the greatest.


What? The disciples argued? I thought they were perfect.

You’d think anyone that hangs out around Jesus as much as they did would have Jesus rub off on them and they wouldn’t do anything wrong.

Okay. I’ll listen.


Jesus knew what they were arguing about and He called a little child and had him stand among them.

Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”


Oh. Does that mean I have to be like a puppy again in order to go to heaven?


Jesus also said, “And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.”


I would welcome a puppy. Maybe you should go out and get me a puppy, person.

I am too listening.


“But,” Jesus said, “if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.”


Does teaching a puppy how to do mischief cause that puppy to sin?

On second thought, maybe we shouldn’t get a puppy. I like swimming, but not if I have a weight around my neck that makes me sink to the bottom.

I’m not sure I want to listen anymore.

Okay, I guess I’ll listen. Are you almost done?


Jesus told a story to show how much He cared about the little ones.

He said, “If a man owns a hundred sheep,…


Sheep!? What happened to the puppy?


and one of the sheep wanders away, the man will leave the ninety-nine sheep on the hills and go look for the one that wandered off. And if he finds it, he is happier about that one sheep than about the ninety-nine that did not wander off.” Jesus said, “In the same way your Father in heaven is not willing that any of these little ones should be lost.


Hey person, I’ll be back in awhile.

I’m going to look for that puppy. I think he got lost.

Little Person

Bongo and the Little PersonI had just finished my walk on my trails and was ready to head into the house for dinner and a nice long nap, when there he was. Right in front of my driveway.

I couldn’t avoid him, and I really wasn’t sure what to make of him. He’s awfully little.

He’s looking at me. What do I do?

I think he wants to touch me now. Maybe if I look the other way he’ll go away.

Oh look, I think I see somebody way over there that I might need to go and give some loves to.

What? What did you say person?

Okay, I’ll be nice and let him touch my head.

Was that good enough?

Hey, wait a minute. That touch felt good.

You might be a little person, but you’re already learning how to give good loves.

And you’re just the right height.
