Jesus and the Little Children
"People were bringing little children
to Jesus to have Him touch them,
but the disciples rebuked them.
When Jesus saw this, He was indignant.
He said to them, 'Let the little children
come to Me, and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of God belongs to such
I tell you the truth, anyone who will not
receive the kingdom of God like a little
child will never enter it.
And He took the children in His arms,
put His hands on them and blessed them."
Mark 10: 13- 16
We must be like little children in innocence and harmlessness if we desire to enter the kingdom of God. We must trust our heavenly Father to provide all our needs just as these little children trust their own parents to provide for all their needs.
Blessed Be Your Name
