“… unless you become like a little child you shall not enter into the Kingdom of GOD…” paraphrase,
So what does a little child have, which as adults we lose, which led to JESUS uttering this command in the Gospel of Matthew?
As adults we lose our obedience. We join organizations which support abortion. We fail to love as a child loves, with hope. We stop listening to our conscience and begin to live against the will of GOD in premarital relationship. We adopt political spin as “real” and embrace what the loud mob demands. We stop reading the Bible, we stop praying “without ceasing”, we stop attending Mass, we very slowly allow satan to form us in his image of do whatever, whenever, however and don’t think about it or worry about it.
Unless you recover your obedience to CHRIST, you shall not enter HIS Kingdom.
