Receiving the Kingdom

In a quick succession, Luke tells 4 ways we are to receive the Kingdom of God from Jesus' teaching.
We are to be like a persistent widow asking the Judge of all for his righteous judgments.
We are to be like a repentant tax collector begging the Judge for mercy.
We are to be like infants, receiving the blessing of God without doing anything whatsoever since we are helpless.
We are to be like a rich man who renounced all he had to follow Christ because he believed that the reward promised by God is worth it. A rich man who has an opportunity to get a 10,000 percent ROI and takes it.
