Jesus welcomed the children who flocked around Him: “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these” (Matthew 19:14). Their openness, their enthusiasm, their trust – all these delighted Jesus. A young child may not understand everything about God – but he or she can understand something. A young child understands love, and also understands what it means to obey someone. Don’t ignore the children God brings across your path, but by your words and your example tell them about Jesus.
He called a little child and had him stand among them…. And he said…”whoever humbles himself like this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.”
