Read Matthew 18 today.

In verse 3 of this chapter, we find these words from Jesus, “I tell you the truth, unless you turn from your sins and become like little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven.” I suspect such words do not play well in a culture that makes no allowance for the existence of sin.
There seem to be two polar opposites at work today. On one hand, there are those who insist on pointing out the sins of others and condemning both the sin and the sinner. On the other hand, there are those who deny the existence of sin and claim we are all ‘basically good people.’ Neither seems to accurately reflect an appropriate response to the words of Jesus.
The words, “unless you turn from your sins” seems personal. You turn from your sins. Stop denying you have sins. Stop working at pointing out someone else’s sins. Instead, consider a little self reflection. What sins are present in your life? (Remember to use God’s definition of sin rather than yours, as we all have a tendency to place our personal preferences in the ‘not sin’ category.) Choose to turn from those sins.
Matthew 18:1-10 NLT
About that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who is greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven?”
[2] Jesus called a little child to him and put the child among them. [3] Then he said, “I tell you the truth, unless you turn from your sins and become like little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven. [4] So anyone who becomes as humble as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven.
[5] “And anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf is welcoming me. [6] But if you cause one of these little ones who trusts in me to fall into sin, it would be better for you to have a large millstone tied around your neck and be drowned in the depths of the sea.
[7] “What sorrow awaits the world, because it tempts people to sin. Temptations are inevitable, but what sorrow awaits the person who does the tempting. [8] So if your hand or foot causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It’s better to enter eternal life with only one hand or one foot than to be thrown into eternal fire with both of your hands and feet. [9] And if your eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It’s better to enter eternal life with only one eye than to have two eyes and be thrown into the fire of hell.
[10] “Beware that you don’t look down on any of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels are always in the presence of my heavenly Father.
