Vision | Visión

“And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.” Matthew 18:3-5

“Y él dijo: “En verdad os digo que, a menos que os cambiéis y os hagáis como niños, no entraréis en el reino de los cielos. Por tanto, cualquiera que se ponga en la posición más humilde de este niño, ése es el mayor en el reino de los cielos. Y quien recibe en mi nombre a uno de esos niños, a mí me recibe.” Mateo 18:3-5
