Matthew 19:13–15 (ESV)

Let the Children Come to Me

13 Then children were brought to him that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples rebuked the people, 14 but Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.” 15 And he laid his hands on them and went away.


One of the most important task of a parent is to raise their child in the faith.  Many parents today are not taking their kids to church or raising them in the faith.  These parents are choosing to lead their children away from God, even if they don’t mean too.  This will or could be passed down to grandchildren, great grandchildren, and so on…  The Lutheran Study Bible states:  Jesus welcomes children and makes it clear that they, too, have a place in the Kingdom. For a variety of reasons—some unavoidable and others the result of selfishness—many children today are not nurtured as they ought to be. Because of His special love for children, Jesus not only allows children into His kingdom, but He also gives them pride of place!



I pray:  O Lord, Give us childlike simplicity, so that we not only love little ones as ourselves but also please You through our humility like that of a child. Amen.

"Depart in Peace" What a blessing when the world is so chaotic! Followers of Christ can find their peace in Him.
