Children of the Bible

    At that time the followers came to Jesus and asked, "Who is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?"
    Jesus called a little child to him and stood the child before his followers.  Then he said, "I tell you the truth, you must change and become like little children. Otherwise, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.  The greatest person in the kingdom of heaven is the one who makes himself humble like this child."  (Matthew 18:1-4, NCV)
