Daily Word Of God

Matthew 11:25-27

Jesus exclaimed, ‘I bless you, Father, Lord of heaven and of earth, for hiding these things from the learned and the clever and revealing them to little children. Yes, Father, for that is what it pleased you to do. Everything has been entrusted to me by my Father; and no one knows the Son except the Father, just as no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.’

  • An “innocent child” has all the qualities that are needed to grow in the virtue of spiritual humility.  Do you have them?  Ponder and list the qualities you have that are helping you grow in spiritual humility.
