“And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them. But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.” – Mark 10:13-16
It’s good to know that our God is one Who just loves being with children. In fact, He calls us all His children. Just think about this for a moment. Consider how children naturally behave, and how loving parents respond. What does this mean for how God relates to you and me? This was what Jesus was trying to teach us.
