“At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, ‘Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?’ He called a child, whom he put among them, and said, ‘Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever becomes humble like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.’” – Matthew 18:1-4
What does it mean to be spiritually mature yet childlike in faith? How does a disciple live in the world yet remain detached from it and dependent on the Father? In a society where dependency and innocence are often viewed as things that need to be outgrown for us to mature, Jesus preaches the opposite. Fr. Jim Rolph joins us this month shed some light on the importance of childlike dependency on the Father and how we can live it out in the world today.
