What Jesus said about the wisdom of children:

 
  • ...unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
    Matthew 18:3-4

  • ...you have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children.
    Matthew 11:25

 

What adults and children say about:

 

Being a good parent

Being a good son or daughter

Being a good husband or wife

What is revealed to children, and not the wise and learned

What it means to become like a child and humble oneself like a child.

 

Things to Remember:

  1. Love

  2. Simple Faith

  3. Humility

  4. Joy
