"Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.” - MATTHEW 18:4
Three things about a child that could have drawn the Lord’s focus: First, children know the limits of the load they can carry. Second, a child understands he or she doesn’t understand everything. Third, a little one is willing to rest in the load-bearer and source of answers. Asking is one of a child’s most notable features. They especially love inquiring, “Why?” But neither are they timid about crying, “Help me, daddy!” Greatness in the Kingdom of God is recognizing human limitations, coming to the Father for help and understanding, and resting in His arms and answers.
