“Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever, humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 18:3-4
As we are called to be disciples to follow Jesus Christ, we first must be children to truly know Him. Wherever, you are in your journey with Him now know that He is at your side.
