Have you ever felt your heart soften as you’ve observed a child? Children often speak from the heart and express love and simple statements of faith. The Savior taught, “Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as [a] little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 18:4).

This could be one reason King Benjamin asked his people to put off the natural man and become as children (see Mosiah 3:19).

How do we become like children? Refer to Mosiah 3:19 to fill in the blanks with the words King Benjamin used to describe a childlike person.

Becoming as a little child allows us to come closer to Christ and experience the joy of becoming Saints through His Atonement.
