For everything that was written in the past was written to teach us, so that through endurance and the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope. —Romans 15:4

Bless the Children

Mark 10:14-16
..."Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 15I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it." 16And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them.

If you've spent much time with young children you know they mimic and follow their parents or caretakers, they trust completely; and they come with open minds and hearts ready to listen and learn.

Jesus wants us to come to him in the same way. He wants us to be like young children, trusting him, following him, loving him and obeying him. Come to him as a child and you will be blessed.
