“Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.” —Matthew 18:3
“Our Heavenly Father knows children are a key to helping us become like Him. It was Jesus Christ Himself who taught us to look to children as an example. Precious children of God come to us with believing hearts. They are full of faith and receptive to feelings of the Spirit. They exemplify humility, obedience, and love. They are often the first to love and the first to forgive.” —Jean A. Stevens
