Jesus Loves the Little Children
“The people brought children to Jesus, hoping he might touch them.
The disciples shooed them off.
"Jesus was irate and let them know it: ‘Don't push these children away.
Don't ever get between them and me.
"These children are at the very center of life in the kingdom.
" 'Mark this: Unless you accept God's kingdom in the simplicity of a child, you'll never get in.’
"Then, gathering the children up in his arms, he laid his hands of blessing on them."
Matthew 10: 13-16 (The Message Bible)
