Jesus and the little children

So how important are children?  How important is it to show them the love of Jesus.  You know, the real, true, accepting, inclusive, never ending, no strings attached love that is in 1 Corinthians 13.

There’s the story in Matthew where the children were brought to Jesus for him to  bless them and pray for them but his close friends thought Jesus shouldn’t be bothered with the children.

So Jesus told his friends, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” Then Jesus placed his hands on them. I suppose spent quality time with them and after that Jesus went on from there.

Hmmm…so where do we place the importance of children in our homes, communities and the body of Christ?

Nurturing and loving them into Kingdom?

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me,

                                        and do not hinder them,

                                                         for the kingdom of heaven belongs to them.”
