Pause for Thought

Back to school.

The shops have been full of notices advertising everything our children need for the start of a new school year, but one thing they cannot supply is that vital ingredient for learning – trust in their teacher. 
Without that trust, all the uniforms and equipment in the world are useless.When Jesus tells us to welcome the kingdom of God like a little child (Mark 10:15) he is reminding us to trust the words of the Gospel just as much as we trusted the words of our childhood teachers, because Jesus is the greatest teacher of all.
