“Then they brought little children to Him, that He might touch them; but the disciples rebuked those who brought them. But when Jesus saw it, He was greatly displeased and said to them, ‘Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of God. Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.’ And He took them up in His arms, put His hands on them, and blessed them” (Mark 10:13-16 NKJV). 1) The “They” who “brought little children” knew Jesus’ “touch” can give direction to precious souls. We’re never too young for Jesus! 2) Children are not “born in sin” or else “the kingdom of God” is made up of sinners! 3) Adults must become trusting “children” who will be taught by Jesus.
