Matthew 19:14-15 (NLT)
14 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.” 15 And he placed his hands on their heads and blessed them before he left.
God is reaching out to you. With his hands on your life, you will be blessed!
The disciples discouraged Jesus from doing this. Perhaps the disciples were thinking about the majestic earthly kingdom that was about to supplant the Romans and bring back Jewish prestige and power. Perhaps they reasoned that Jesus spending time with the children was being “off-task.”
