Becoming like little children
Then he said, "I assure you, unless you turn from your sins and become as little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven. Matthew 18:3 NLT
This has been one of the recurring themes that has been creeping up in my readings, the sermon this weekend, etc. Think God is trying to tell me something?
Here's what commentary says on NETBible regarding this verse: The point of the comparison become like little children has more to do with a child’s trusting spirit, as well as willingness to be dependent and receive from others, than any inherent humility the child might possess.

A really good pot is in the details. --Doug Casebeer at the Ceramics Workshop in Jamaica '10
There's only one way to grow while making art: take risks and allow yourself to make a lot of bad work, then look at it. I consider what is working well, what missed the mark or confused the reading, what needs to be adjusted on the next one. --Linda Arbuckle in The Penland Book of Ceramics
All great actions have been simple, and all great pictures are. --Ralph Waldo Emerson
