“Now they were bringing even infants to him that he might touch them. And when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them. But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.” (Luke 18:15-17)
Jesus loved to spend time with children. Everywhere in his journeys He would take time to spend with children and enjoy their company and teach them. One time He and His disciples were traveling and parents were bringing their children to Jesus. The disciples, either really tired or were in a hurry, wanted to keep going but Jesus stopped to spend time with these children.
Jesus taught the disciples (and in turn us) the importance of children both for the children and for ourselves. We are responsible to share with them Jesus. We also are to have faith like children in Jesus, fully trusting in Him. This week, let us live out our faith like that of a child. And let us teach and love on kids with the love of Jesus.
