The wolf will live with the lamb,
the leopard will lie down with the goat,
the calf and the lion and the yearling together;
and a little child will lead them.
The cow will feed with the bear,
their young will lie down together,
and the lion will eat straw like the ox.
The infant will play near the cobra’s den,
and the young child will put its hand into the viper’s nest.
They will neither harm nor destroy
on all my holy mountain,
for the earth will be filled with the knowledge of the Lord
as the waters cover the sea.” (Isaiah 11: 6-9 NIV)
When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them. (Mark 10: 14-16 NIV)
“Anyone who does not receive the Kingdom of God like a little child shall not enter it.”
“No harm or ruin on that Holy Mountain. That sacred day shall be filled with knowledge. There shall be peace, led by all the Children. On that Holy Mountain of The LORD.”
Ah, things we can learn from Children!
