‪”Anything we do to hinder a dear child from coming to Jesus greatly displeases our dear Lord.” ~ Charles Spurgeon “Come Ye Children”

During Jesus’ ministry on earth, He valued children and cautioned His disciples not to keep them from coming to Him. Whether actively or passively, we must not prevent children from getting to Jesus. (Mark 10:13-16)

“People were bringing little children to him in order that he might touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw it, he was indignant and said to them, “Let the little children come to me. Don’t stop them, because the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” After taking them in his arms, he laid his hands on them and blessed them.” ~ ‭‭Mark‬ ‭10:13-16‬ ‭CSB‬‬
