Then he said, “I tell you the truth, unless you turn from your sin and become like little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven.”
Children have not yet been polluted by life’s hardships and complications, they’re pre-programmed to be humble. They’re little sponges soaking up all the wondrous things around them. It’s simple for them to fully believe all of the stories in the Bible. As adults, we’ve been tainted by life’s circumstances and can take a skeptical view of things. We have to be open and humble to absorb God’s plan for our lives and to be able to fully come to him in our weakness, to draw on His strength and wisdom.
