Jesus, the only begotten Son of God is very clear when he expressed that unless we become as little children, we will not enter into the kingdom of Heaven (Matthew 18:3). Simply, if we think of ourselves to be more than children, then such thinking implies we do not need God. Just as children need parents, we as God’s creatures need God (Romans 8:20-21).
The same way that parents look out for their children, God, our Creator, has promised to provide for those who seek him. God wants us to put our trust completely in him.
To think that we do not need God would mean that we deny that God is the Creator, and it makes us to be more than the dust of the earth, which God used to create us all. “For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now” (Romans 8:22).
We must humble ourselves as little children and obey God. As little children obey and look up to their parents, so we too are to do the same to look up to our Father, the Creator. King Jesus said heartily thousands of years earlier, “Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom” (Luke 12:32).
“When ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him” (Matthew 6:7-8).
“[AFTER THIS MANNER THEREFORE PRAY YE]: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen” (Matthew 6:9-13).
In glory of the FATHER, the SON and the HOLY SPIRIT. Amen.
