The Innocence of A Child
Matthew 18:2-3 (KJB) And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them, 3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
What exactly does “become as little children…” mean in this scripture verse?
A little child often has uninhibited trust. He or she is not bogged down by doubts, fears, and questions. Their mind is open to learn about the things they can touch, hear, and see as well as not clouded or anxious about things they hear about but cannot see or touch.
Their eyes see possibilities rather than problems and their ears hear about opportunities instead of complications.
A little child can easily trust in what God’s Word reveals, they delight in truths of God they can view, and desire that they cannot see or touch, and hearing the gospel message is like music to their soul.
Oh…, if only every grown person could be childlike, laying aside the worries of this world to better hear and perceive what God’s Word reveals for them and about them, both in this world and forever in the eternal realm.
