Through a child's eyes

I love children!! They are innocent and open to life fully. When they pretend, they know it is only pretending. Where we adults can be so full of pretense. There is much to learn from Gods precious ones.I think greatness in the kingdom of heaven will be measured not by rank or power but by childlikeness.

At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, "Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?"
He called a little child and had him stand among them. And he said: "I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me. But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea".
