Like a Little Child

GUWGChildPrayingWe continue our journey into every word spoken by Jesus in the Gospels to help us all KNOW JESUS MORE NOW.

People were bringing little children to Jesus. The disciples rebuked ’em, ignoring what Jesus taught here.

Jesus didn’t like that. He called the children to him and said:

“Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, 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, placed his hands on them and blessed them.

(Matthew 19:13-15; Mark 10:13-16; Luke 18:15-17)

I love the images in this tender little story: Jesus calling little kids to himself, gathering ’em up in his arms and blessing ’em. What a beautiful picture.

Want to enter God’s Kingdom? Receive it like a little child. Come running to Jesus and he’ll open his arms wide, bless you and welcome you in.
