Are you childlike? Jesus tells us that those who consider themselves to be wise and the learned will not enter the kingdom of heaven. Instead, the kingdom is intended for those who seek the Lord with the trust, wonder and humility of a child.
At that time Jesus exclaimed:
“I give praise to you, Father, Lord of heaven and earth,
for although you have hidden these things
from the wise and the learned
you have revealed them to the childlike.
Yes, Father, such has been your gracious will.
All things have been handed over to me by my Father.
No one knows the Son except the Father,
and no one knows the Father except the Son
and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal him.”
