I Corinthians 13:11
I Corinthians 14:20
We are to receive the gospel with childlike faith. However, in understanding, we are to be men, not children.
Children accept what their parents say at face value as true (usually). This is the way we are to accept the gospel; not with a critical skepticism, but with our whole hearts, placing complete trust in Jesus Christ. In this way, we are certainly to be like little children. We are also to be children concerning evil (or malice). However, when it comes to wisdom and understanding, we are commanded to mature in the Lord, becoming men.
