Mark: A Walk With Our Savior (Day 41)

Read Mark 10:13-16
   To feel secure, all children need is a loving look and gentle touch from someone who cares. They believe us because they trust us. Jesus said that people should trust in Him with this kind of childlike faith. We do not have to understand all the mysteries of the universe; it should be enough to know that God loves us and provides forgiveness for our sin. This doesn’t mean that we should be childish or immature, but we should trust God with a child’s simplicity and receptivity. 
Jesus was often criticized for spending too much time with the wrong people: children, tax collectors, and sinners (Matthew 9; Luke 15 & 19), Some including the disciples, thought Jesus should be spending more time with important leaders and the devout, because this was the way to improve His position and avoid criticism. But Jesus didn’t need to improve His position. He was God, and He wanted to speak to those who needed Him most.
