Child of the Kingdom

So anyone who becomes as humble as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. (Matthew 18:4 NLT)

The disciples had asked Jesus “Who is greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven?”  Jesus placed a child on His lap and said that anyone who wants to be in the Kingdom of Heaven must become like a little child.  They must be humble.  In the time of Jesus there was an order of importance and children were at the bottom of the list.  Jesus says they are at the highest level in the kingdom.  What does this mean?  A small child knows they don’t know everything.  They are a sponge soaking up information.  They are seeking to know more.  They trust.  They believe what is told to them.  Those who want to be in the Kingdom of God will do the same.  We will soak up the Word of God.  We will always be seeking to know more about Jesus.  We will believe and trust the LORD.  Be a child of the Kingdom today.
