Greatest In The Kingdom Of Heaven

Jesus overheard a debate between his disciples about who among them would be greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. So Jesus sat down a little child next to him to use as a visual aid to represent the child of God and then proceeded to give a lecture on (1) how to get into the Kingdom, (2) how to be great in the Kingdom and (3) how to receive the King's favor. Regarding greatness, he explained that it's the humility of our heart before God that makes us truly great. Jesus then said, "Whoever welcomes and receives one such child in My name welcomes and receives Me. But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to stumble into sin, it would be better for them if a millstone were hung around their neck and thrown into the sea." (For those of you who've been waiting to hear me talk about Hell, this one's for you.) Jesus then spoke of just how far the Father goes to protect his children, even when they rebel or run away. He gave his famous parable of the lost sheep and then explained that every last one of us who are called a child of God, have angels guarding us 24/7. Guardian angels are not a myth, they're a Biblical reality.
