Being Like a Child

Read: Matthew 18:4

A child depends on his mother for his basic needs like food, water, care, etc. Children have the lowest position in the society as they have to depend on someone till they are old. Children do not pretend to be someone that they are not. They are honest about their emotions. Jesus told His disciples that unless they change, they will never enter the kingdom of heaven. In God’s kingdom, the humblest person is the greatest. Jesus’ disciples needed the lesson on humility as they were to carry out the ministry of spreading the gospel. Even though Judas Iscariot was one among Jesus’ disciples, his greed led him to commit suicide. Had Judas repented, he would have continued Christ’s ministry.
