JESUS AND THE CHILDRENSome Mothers and Fathers decided to take their children to go with them to see Jesus. They wanted Jesus to bless their children. Everyone was excited because they had heard wonderful things about Jesus, and they wanted to see Him and hear His stories.
When they got there Jesus' helpers told the Mothers and Fathers to take their children and go away. They said Jesus was too busy to be bothered with little children.
But Jesus heard them, and He went over to them and said, "Do NOT stop the children. Let them come to me." Jesus loved children. He took them in His arms and said, "I wish everyone were like little children, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these." Then Jesus placed His hands on each child and blessed them.
