Do you want to go to heaven? The disciples questioned Jesus on who was the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. He then put a child in the midst of them (Matthew 18.2) and said,

Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me.”

– Matthew 18.2–5

Therefore, if we hope to go to heaven, we have to humble ourselves (v. 4), and, we must receive children (v. 5). Your attitude toward children will determine whether you go to heaven!
