|Jesus really knows how to reassure us and encourage us along the way.|
In Matt. 18, the disciples were concerned about greatness or their status in the kingdom.
Jesus, Who was trusted with children (see Matt. 19:13-15), and loved children called a child, and with unquestioning obedience that child came Jesus. Look at the lesson Jesus gave with the child standing there:
|2 And He called a child to Himself and set him before them,|
|3 and said, "Truly I say to you, unless you are converted and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.|
|4 "Whoever then humbles himself as this child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.|
A child has unquestioning obedience.
A child had total trust.
A child has daily dependence.
A child has a meaningful connection with their parent.
Try to keep things simple and trust, obey, depend, and love God as a child.
Let you guard down and realize that God knows all about your situation and exercise childlike faith in God.
