Christ Revealed His Father to the Humble

Matthew 11:25-27


Unbelievers of Jesus made Him sad.

Those who accepted Jesus made Him glad.

Humble folks did not trust their own wisdom.

They did not lean on their understanding.


Jesus Christ received everything from God.

Jesus recognized God as His Father.

Christ revealed God to the humble of heart.

In prayer, Jesus showed his deepest feelings.


Jesus always said Yes to His Father.

Jesus Christ expressed the depth of His heart.

He longed to give His Father good pleasure.

With love, He adhered His heart to God’s will.


Sometimes I did not talk to my father.

He forgave me and we became great friends.
