Let the Children Come

Standard

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:14)

I was reminded of this verse last night. There is a 10 month old in our church named Abigail. She is known as the “answered prayer of our church”, because after years of struggling to have a child, God blessed her mother with Abby. When the church found out, we were ecstatic.

Now, Abby is healthy like a bug 🙂 I don’t even know if that simile even makes sense lol. But, she is always smiling. Now at this age, babies can’t really control their emotions. Everything they do and say is all due to their reflexes. When babies smile, they are smiling because they are actually happy. This is another form of their purity. That is another reason Jesus tells us to be like these children.

They are genuine.
