27th Sunday - B (October 7, 2018)
Jesus tells us to “accept the kingdom of God like a child.”
Children depends on their parents for everything. So do we on God.
As we get older, naturally, we can, and we need to do more things for ourselves. But we then run the risk of thinking that we are in charge, and that we do not need God.
Everything comes from God, beginning with our very existence.
