Matthew 18:3 “Truly I say to you, unless you change and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
Is there anything more winsome than a child in devotion? What is the character of a child that Jesus finds so important that he would command his disciples, or rather warn them that to be child-like I essential to enter the kingdom of heaven? Surely we are aware of the contrasting view of “the times” when children were more of a nuisance and a hindrance than anything else. Not much different today as we gleefully slaughter the unborn all over the world for the sake of our own concupiscence.
What Jesus saw in a child, I believe, is the capacity to be taught, the capacity to love openly, the capacity to be honest about the pain of living crying out at it rather than trying to dull that pain with some form of chemical substitute.
How then can we “change” and become like little children? Open our hearts to the love of God in Jesus Christ and allow His Holy Spirit to guide and please you in every way.
