    THIS CHAPTER AND BEING REVEALED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT MEANS THAT WE SHOULD BE HUMBLE IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES FOR THIS IS THE DUTY AND SHOULD BE THE DUTY OF EACH AND EVERY CHRISTIAN. FOR THE KEYS TO SUCCESS IS PERSERVERANCE AND HUMILITY. GOD BLESS AND I PRAY THAT EACH AND EVERY CHRISTIAN IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE - THAT WOULD BE ON A UNIVERSAL BASIS MEANS WE SHOULD STRIVE TO BE MORE LIKE JESUS EACH DAY.

    " Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven." Child-like does not mean being infantile in your behavior: it's not thinking and acting like a child, when we are grown up men! But it is love out of the innocence and purity of a good conscience, faith without hypocrisy, and the hope! "Acting like a child" is different.

    Dear Boba Fett - I like that you appreciate the teachings of Jesus even if you claim that you are not a Christian. May I just add that aside from your entering a spiritual state every time you play with your lego, Jesus is telling us that "being a child" means possessing a humble and teachable spirit like children :)
