Children are a gift from God. They bless our lives tremendously. The love that one feels for, and receives from, a child is the most purest form of love one may ever receive from man. It is a bond that should remind us of the love that God has for us, His children.
Jesus called the children to him and said, suffer the little children to come unto Me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God (Luke 18:16). Children are completely dependent on their parents or guardians. We should be completely dependent on the Lord. He is the one Who laid down His life for us.Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein. (Luke 18:17)
Unless we repent and humble ourselves as children we will not enter His rest.
Pride is our greatest hindrance.
