Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven? And [Jesus] called to him a little child, and set him in the midst of them. Matthew 18.1, 2.

The Lord concretely demonstrates His points as well as speaks forth in parables. By setting the little child in the midst of the disciples He is able tangibly to draw a comparison between the two parties. A single glance at the little child will tell the observer his height, weight, age, experience, and so forth. There is not even the need to inquire. A quick look will do.

If having been born again one can keep himself always humble as a little child, this man is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Unfortunately, many forsake this condition. Though they are but children, they act like grown-ups. To “become as little children” (v.3) is the one condition for entering the kingdom of heaven, and to hold on to this condition becomes the very basis for subsequent greatness.
