The Greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven
1 At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
2 He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. 3 And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
Learn to let your face show what you really feel.
Do not contort it into a smile when your enemy passes
and inwardly you shrink.
Smile at those you like,
If you had a dreadful Christmas,
a dud holiday,
If you see injustice,
say “It is not fair.”
Do not let fear constrain you.
See the full moon yellow in the sky,
the orange gerbera,
the variations of pebbles.
Whatever you do,
do it with all your heart.
If adults say “Hurry up”
in a bar of chocolate,
soap bubbles sparkling iridescent.
Grin when you are happy,
Cry when you are sad,
And forgive those who have made you sad.
Time is for having fun.
Running, swimming, splashing.
Remember to thank God who made everything,
and gave you,
as much goodness
as your little hands
