13 Then people brought little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked them. 14 Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” 15 When he had placed his hands on them, he went on from there.
I know Jesus cares about the kids.
I know Jesus’ heart is for ALL kids. The babies, the toddlers, the teens and the kids that are no longer kids.
I know that some kids have walked away from Jesus yet their parents are still invited and welcomed by Jesus to “bring” them to Him.
I know Jesus loves the faith of a concerned and caring parent. A faith that never ceases to pray, to bring before Him the kids that need the blessing of the Saviour so badly.
I know these parental tears of concern are so precious to Jesus that He collects them and stores them in His bottle (Psalm 56:8).
I know that these kids may be far from Jesus yet somehow are still within His embrace.
I know that Jesus is all about the prodigal – all about calling them back to Him.
And I know one day that child will return. And what a joyful day that will be!
