“But Jesus said, ‘Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to those who are like these children.'” Matthew 19:14
Parents pushed and shoved their children forward, hoping the famous man would bless them. His assistants, thinking they were protecting Him from unwanted demands, tried to shoo the kids away, but this important man became indignant with His assistants. “Let the children come to me,” He said. Taking the children into His arms, He hugged them. The children loved Him. This man’s name was Jesus. Jesus showed His well-intentioned disciples just how important children are to God.
Question: Dad…Mom…do you make time for your children like Jesus did? Jesus, who lived an incredibly busy life, was not too busy to make time for the next generation. Are you?
Very often, a child’s importance is shown when we give a listening ear or a hug. It’s time that they want and need. When it comes to your kids, ask the Lord to help you be like Jesus. No job is more important than that — even if you’re the Son of God.
