Now that we know who can understand what the Kingdom of Heaven is, the next question the disciples ask is , who then is greatest in The Kingdom? What a surprise, we want to know how to excel, succeed and advance.
I can't imagine the look on their faces when Jesus draws a child close to him and says "unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom" Enter!I can imagine that they thought they already had a place in the Kingdom all they needed to work out was the pecking order.
That is a good place to stop and reflect on my assumptions.
What qualities is YHWH looking for in us?
