Many years ago I was at a church and there was a man there that had a problem with the children I was bringing in on the bus and van. He didn’t like the children tracking mud in on the carpet even though it wasn’t them doing it!
Back in the day, Jesus had that same problem. Luke 18:15-16, And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them: but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them. But Jesus called them unto him, and said, “Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not : for of such is the kingdom of God.”
The feeling was that small children were not too important. The Lord Jesus felt differently about children and they were not a bother to him. Have you ever noticed that children naturally come to the Lord. They want to follow him and they’ll follow him blindly. We as adults have to study on it for a while before we take a step for Jesus in the dark and that’s not the way it should be. We must learn to follow Jesus like a little child, putting our faith in him in all things!
