13 People were bringing little children to Jesus in order that he might touch them; and the disciples spoke sternly to them. 14 But when Jesus saw this, he was indignant and said to them, “Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs. 15 Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it.” 16 And he took them up in his arms, laid his hands on them, and blessed them.
Just about the time we think we are too busy for Your Presence, Holy God, You ask us to embrace one of Your dear children. Let us welcome our own little ones into our lives, and in the process remind us how You welcome us into Your family of faith. Amen.
