Being Like Little Children

But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”  (Matthew 19:14)

The qualities of a child---pure, simple, obedient.  This childlike faith that God requires of us does not demand an age bracket, but an attitude.  The reason why He says "of such" and not "of these" is that He is referring to the disposition and character, and not the age.  

Like children we ought to be---harmless, free from malice and delusions, free from pride and self-conceit.  With pure, trusting hearts, let us rest in His love just like these children. They know their place in God's heart. 

Meeting with the church is a safe, positive, and encouraging environment.  These little children just lying down on the Worship Hall floors while worship is going on is a testament to that.
