Except you… become as little children, you cannot enter the kingdom of God. Matthew 18:2

What did Jesu mean when he said, become as little children? He meant a child is teachable! If we are teachable we are reachable. If we are hungry for God’s word, we have a future. A child is dependant! Jesus said in John 15:5, without me you can do nothing. Sometimes when we succeed, we become drunk on our success. Then we go out and act like it all depends on us. The truth is we can’t get out of bed without him.

Notice also a child is trusting! It never occurs to them to wonder if their needs will be met. They’ve learned to trust. Someone has said, “If we used God as our first resort, we wouldn’t have to use Him as our last resort.”

Today, we need to become as a little child; teachable, dependant, and obedient. Ask God to help you live that way.
