How do you think it feels to be compared to a child? How does it feel to be told, by Jesus Himself, to become like a child? Have you ever wished you could again be as carefree as when you were young? What was Jesus talking about in Matthew 18:3 when he says that without doing this we can’t even enter the Kingdom of Heaven?
This question is addressed in the first section of Harold Martin’s new article, Lessons from Matthew 18. In that chapter we also find instruction on compassion and forgiveness. Really, the teaching we find in Matthew 18 is about relating to others as God would have us to, showing humility (1 Peter 5:6) and forgiveness (Ephesians 4:32).
