| Jesus Blesses The Children |
LL THROUGH HIS life, which He spent in loving service towards men, our Saviour was specially kind and tender to little children.
|Blessing the children.|
One day He was so much inconvenienced by the number of women with children in their arms pressing upon Him, and entreating Him to bless their little ones, that the disciples who were with Him rebuked the mothers.
Jesus said to them "Suffer the little children to come unto Me, and forbid them not, for of such is the Kingdom of Heaven."
Then He told those about Him that if only they would receive His teaching of the Kingdom of God, and believe in Him as simply and entirely as little children did, they would inherit Eternal Life.
Then He would take the little ones who clustered round His feet into His loving arms and bless them.
