From the Word: 2 And calling a young child, he set him in the midst of them, 3 and said, “Truly, I say to you, unless you change, and become like little children, you will never enter into the kingdom of heaven. 4 Whoever humbles himself as this young child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 18:2–4)

From the Confessions: The Large Catechism, Preface

Concerning the Sacrament

In the same night in which he was betrayed, our Lord Jesus Christ took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to his disciples, saying, “Take, eat. This is my body, which is given for you. Do this in remembrance of me.”

Pulling It Together: My grandchildren help themselves to our pantry and refrigerator. They understand that Nana and Papa do not want them to be hungry. We encourage them to take and eat. I admit to being a little nervous when one gets into a high cabinet for a favorite coffee cup. That mug is irreplaceable. Nonetheless, take and drink. Jesus would have us be just like my grandkids. Take him at his word, and do so in remembrance of him.

Prayer: Help me believe that what you promise is for me. Amen.
