Like a Child

Amen, I say to you, whoever does not accept the Kingdom of God like a child will not enter it.

If we are honest, any or all of us can probably recall a day or two at a playground or schoolyard, when we were a bit nasty and competitive. Jesus is not romanticizng childhood. But maybe he is pointing to the reality of openness and a kind of naivete in little children that makes them receptive to what is new.
