Matt. 18:2 ~ Except you become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of Heaven.
What did Jesus mean when He said, “Become as little children?” He meant a child is teachable! If you’re teachable, you’re reachable. If you are hungry for God’s word, you have a future. A child is dependent! Jesus said in John 15:5, without me you can do nothing. The truth is you couldn’t even get out of bed in the morning without him, right.
Furthermore, notice also children are trusting! It never occurs to them to wonder if their needs will be met. They’ve learned to trust. Sadly, it’s only after we have exhausted our own efforts that we turn in desperation to God. Someone said, “if we use God as a first resort, we wouldn’t have to use Him as a last resort!”
