Last evening we took the kids to a favorite restaurant as a treat. While waiting for our food, I decided I might as well get the inevitable restroom trip with the Princess out of the way.
As she clicked the lock into place and set down on her "throne", I heard the words to the song "Jesus loves the little children" start up.
An older lady walked into the restroom, then into the other stall. Which didn't phase the Princess any at all.
Jesus died for all the children, all the children of the world...
Jesus is coming for all the children, all the children of the world...
I have to admit I was a little embarrassed. Was it because my daughter was serenading another person during a preferably private procedure? Or was it that I was embarrassed at the message she was sharing?
While I pondered this, this passage from the 18th chapter of Matthew came to mind:
At the same time came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven? And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoso shall receive one such little child in my name receiveth me.
