From the Mouth of a Child

Matthew 18:3 says, “…except ye be converted,and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of God.”

One of my favorite things to hear while I’m on my mission, is a little kid pray. When children pray I truly understand what Christ meant when he told us to become as children. One young boy the other day began praying and he only said three sentences, but the one that stood out to me was so profound that I forgot he was only no older than five years old. This boy said, “Help us to be great members of the church and remember the true meaning of the gospel.”

This should be at the root of all of our prayers. This should be at the root of all of our lives. This should be HOW WE LIVE! This little boy gets it. We should be striving every day to be great members of Christ true church on the earth and remember the TRUE MEANING OF THE GOSPEL!

The main thing…is to keep the main thing…the main thing. Jesus Christ is the main thing. We must have faith in him, rely on his atonement in repentance daily, be baptized in his name and receive the gift of the Holy Ghost and take the sacrament every Sunday in remembrance of the covenants that we made to Jesus Christ and Heavenly Father, and we must endure to the end.
