3 “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.
Not sure if it was Mother’s Day being yesterday or some other reason, but I could not get this verse out of my head last night.
Any thoughts or insights on this verse?
To what extent was Jesus speaking of here?
That we must be pure like little children?
That we must think as little children?
That we must rely on authority as little children do?
Depending on the answers should we apply this when we read scripture?
As a child we are able to learn and absorb what we are taught, but as an adult we tend to question things and test things because we don’t always trust authority.
To become like children just all of the sudden seemed to speak of a deeper meaning than ever before. This verse was always one that I tended to read but did not absorb.
Thanks for you responses.
