Little Children

Posted 04-01-2011 at 08:22 AM by snowduck


Matthew 18:2-3 He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: "Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. - When our daughter was learning to walk, she tried to go down some stairs one time, but I was holding onto her hands and we managed to avoid them. She could hardly walk on a smooth floor, but because I was there and holding on to her, she was certain that she could go down those stairs because she had faith in me that no harm would come to her. Christ uses the faith and humility of little children to illustrate what our attitudes toward God should be. Us grown up people like to apply common sense to everything, and common sense is a blessing from God that certainly has its place and I use it all the time. But little children, although often lacking common sense, have a humility and a faith that they can do things they wouldn't normally do if someone they trust is looking out for them. This what Christ is talking about in Matthew 18:2-3. Our "common sense" doesn't interest him in this case,he demands that we become childlike (not childish.) We must have the humility and faith of little children, and accept what God tells us, in order to enter the kingdom of heaven. What About Jesus?
