Heaven’s door

Matthew 18:3 “…I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”*

The door to heaven

is not very high

to enter, one must become small.

Step down the ladder

forget being great

stoop down to go in, pride and all.

    This reminds me of a quote by F.B. Meyer…
    “I used to think that God’s gifts were on shelves one above the other, and that the taller we grew in Christian character the easier we should reach them. I find now that God’s gifts are on shelves one beneath the other, and that it is not a question of growing taller but of stooping lower, and that we have to go down, always down, to get His best gifts.”
    Thanks so much for this wonderful post, sister!
