Think lil' kid

Hey Girls! Yes, I know I've been gone for, like, a month...{SORRY!!!} But, my excuse is that I've been busy with visiting family and such.  Okey dokey, on to!!!
Okay, so, I've been reading through the book of Luke. I don't really know what exactly I should post about except for that fact that it should have something to do with something happening in Luke.  
    *skimming through the book* 

     *still skimming*
AHAH!!!!! I've found the passage on which I will give you my opinion on.
Now they were bringing even infants to Him that he might touch them. And when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them. But Jesus called them to Him, saying, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you,  whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it." Luke 18: 15-17

I don't know about you, but whenever I read this little passage, I get the feeling that Jesus must have really liked little kids.  And whenever I get that feeling, I start to grin, because there's something just so exciting and swoon worthy thinking of Jesus with a bunch of little kids climbing on Him and playing with Him. :D 
Now these verses can be kind of confusing sometimes. Like, what did Jesus mean about us receiving the kingdom of God like a little kid would...? Little kids are imaginative and they believe anything they're told. They believe in magic, without question. When they go to Sunday School, they here about Jesus and all the "cool" miracles He did, and they don't doubt for one second that it's not true.  So, I don't think Jesus meant that we should be immature, but that we should, instead, think like a little kid.

And thank you,Prism, for following!!!!!!!
