Kids say the darndest things, right? We all have experienced that in some way or another. According to Jesus, children don’t only say the darndest things. They also get the Kingdom of God in the darndest ways.
Jesus says in Mark 10, “Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs. Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it.”
Indeed, if we pay attention to children in their most basic and instinctual element, they show us what God’s Kingdom is all about. They show us what love is. They show us what love is not, that it’s “not envious or boastful or arrogant or rude.”
