Joyful Praise

Matthew 215, But when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying out in the temple and saying, "Hosanna to the Son of David!" they were indignant. Jesus has recently entered Jerusalem and had just thrown out the people in the temple courts who were charging exuberant, unfair amounts of money to the people who needed their money excanged. And then the children start praising Jesus in the temple. Notice it’s not the leaders, it’s not the adults, it’s the children that are praising Jesus, not only praising Jesus, but shouting and crying out to Jesus with their praises. The children recognized Jesus and shouted joyful praise to Him. And how did the church leaders responded, they were displeased. Don’t let your busyness or adult heart turn you away from joyfully praising Jesus. Don’t let the cares of this world deter your praise to Jesus.
Matthew 18:3, And he (Jesus) said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
