Imagine the arms of Jesus around me.

Respectful. Comforting. Loving. Gentle. Protective. Reassuring. Encouraging. Peace-giving.

Am I willing to receive each of God’s children in the name of Jesus with respect, comfort, gentleness, protection, reassurance, encouragement, and peace?

Taking a child, [Jesus] placed it in the their midst, and putting his arms around it, he said to them, “Whoever receives one child such as this in my name, receives me; and whoever receives me, receives not me but the One who sent me.” Mark 9:36-37
