There are some things in the Bible that I did not quite grasp until I became a dad. For example, in Matthew 19, Jesus rebukes his disciples because they are trying to keep children from getting to Jesus. Then Jesus says in verse 14, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”
Jesus wants us to have a childlike faith. Childlike is not the same as childish. Knowing this, I have been an avid observer of my little boy. I am watching him to try and understand this verse and why Jesus says the Kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these little children.
I am working on a few posts under the title of Childlike where I document my observations. I pray that my observations are dead on when it comes to learning about this beautiful Scripture.
The posts will be from my view as a disciple as well as being a dad.
Do you have any insight on this verse? What has the Holy Spirit showed you childlike means? Please share in the comments.
