Like A Child, The Teacher Says

Like a child, the Teachers says
Simple trust, the child has
Untainted love.
Humble himself, but so greatly treasured
Both on earth and in heaven.

Children capture our hearts,
not because they have accomplished great things,
not because they give us expensive gifts,
not because they sacrifice time or material,
not because they speak eloquently,
not because they posses power or knowledge,
but just because they are, they exist.
If we believed we were loved "just because,"
would we love better?
For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost. (Matthew 18:11)
Matthew 18:
2-6 He called a little child and had him stand among them. And he said: "I tell you the truth, 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. And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me. But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.
10 See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.
