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.

been thinking of you since your last post, it's aways good to feel God working in us, even if it's painful.

i'm really appreciating getting to know you, praise God for leading us both to wheatland!!
