Bible Verse for Today
“And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 18:3)
One thing that Jesus was trying to bring our from this passage and this statement of becoming like children is that he wants us to be humble. There are so many characters that children possess that we can try to adopt in our lives as adults. I witnessed a quarrel amongst sets of kids – about 5 years of age. 3 days after they quarreled, they have started playing together again.
The simple thing about children is that they forgive easily except some that have been affected by the toxic characters of the adults around them. Forgiving other people will make us be forgiven by God. Matthew 6:14 “For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.”
Parenting is not an ordinary thing. It’s spiritual – it involves nurture, protecting, providing, caring, and training children. All these things are things that every child submits to and obediently accept.
It is only the children that accept this, as maturity starts to come in, it becomes so uneasy to make them hear but the lessons and the teachings guide them. In this exact manner, when we give our life to Christ we get to the point where we get to learn, we are nurtured, raised – this is our turn to submit to teachings, stay to be nurtured in Christ. These are the characters of children that we must put on.

Father Lord, I open myself to be taught and to be nurtured by you. I want to put on the character of a child and have the spirit of humility in me. Show me the way that you want me to live. I pray that you help me to overcome the spirit of pride, the spirit that rejects teachings – help me to take off the attitude.
