Best Answer

Matthew 18:3 (New World Translation) "and said: "Truly I say to you, Unless You turn around and become as young children, you will by no means enter into the kingdom of the heavens."

In addition, in the Jesus' society, be like a child was like to be nobody: a weak and needed creature which depends totally on its parents. Jesus state to "have faith like children", cause children are weak and needed, just like the Kingdom of God is: for the poor, the weak and hunger. For Jesus, God is for whose not have place in the society, these are the first for the Kingdom of God. When Jesus suggest to be like children, he is suggesting a change in the behavior of people, the beginning o a new personality.

Matthew 18:2-6 "And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said, "Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. "Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me, but whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened around his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea."
