“Let The Children Come” ( Mark 10: 14, HCSB ) by Carley Evans


“Let the little children come to Me. Don’t stop them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”

I know that in the moment Jesus says this, He is indignant because His disciples rebuke parents – most likely – who bring their children to Jesus for His blessing. What are you thinking!? Don’t stop them! Don’t you know, can’t you tell!? The kingdom of God belongs to people who become children – childlike: trusting, open, frank in their honesty, desirous to please. Don’t you know?
