{"And he said: 'Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.'" -Matthew 18:3, NIV}

In Matthew 17, we find the disciples arguing over who is the greatest among them. In Matthew 18:3, Jesus responds with a call on all of us to become like little children. He calls a little child to him and places that child before his audience as an example of the humble and childlike attitude that is required by anyone who desires to enter God's kingdom. Becoming like a child is not a one time thing. It requires time because it is an ongoing process of learning how to truly depend on and submit to God on an everyday basis- throughout every aspect of our lives, good or bad. As we continue to grow older, we tend to mistake the knowledge we have for wisdom, which means the more we [think] we know, the more we tend to be skeptical and doubtful about our faith in the Lord. Sometimes it becomes more about believing what we see instead of believing in the things unseen. However, when we focus on placing our trust wholeheartedly in God, He fills us with the faith our hearts desire in order to trust Him in all things. Trust not in what you [think you] know, but what He knows. God is all-knowing, all-powerful, all-loving, and all YOURS. You are a child of the King most high. It's not about what we as grown-ups do and just how "figured out" we have everything. It's about what God is doing and how we are allowing Him to guide us in our decision-making process, as well as how we are allowing Him to fill us. Trust keeps us going. Not knowledge or having it all figured out, but trust.
