Who is the greatest the greatest in the Kingdom?

Jesus in today’s Gospel instructs us to become like children (Matthew 18:1-5, 10). In fact, Jesus calls a child over when asked who is the greatest in the Kingdom of God. He admonishes us to become like children. In what way should we be like children? Children have great joy, great hope and seem to smile at the smallest joys. I spend the weekend with my 2-year-old nephew – and his face was constantly smiling and he was looking to play and just be fully present. We can learn a lot from children. Jesus calls us to do just that!
