New Living Translation (NLT)
2 Jesus called a little child to him and put the child among them. 3 Then he said, “I tell you the truth, unless you turn from your sins and become like little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven. 4 So anyone who becomes as humble as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven.
Angels in a Three-Piece Suit
Bright white varnish, that covers everything
Making all that’s dirty
As new as flowers in the spring
Soft damp blanket, spread over winter’s scene
Chilling the human form
With winds both fierce and mean
Childhood recalled, the thoughts that haunt the mind
Slaying the usual and mundane
So our inner child we find
Arms spread out wide, we sprawl before the crowd
Making snow angels in a three-piece suit
Our spirit’s free to laugh out loud

Give us hearts that seek only after You. That forsake this world. That long only to be conformed to Jesus.
Thank You, Lord!
