Matthew 18 vs. 3-4

3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.  4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.

Jesus said whoever wants to make heaven must have the qualities of a child. What are these qualities that every Christian should imbibe?

    There is a deep mistery to the characteristics of children. May God help us to act according to his instructions in Jesus name. Amen.
