Now they were bringing even infants to him that he might touch them. And when the disciples saw it, they rebuked them. But Jesus called them to him, saying, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of God. Truly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God like a child shall not enter it.”
Jesus loved children. It is in the innocence of a child that we see what heaven will be like, just as it was before Adam and Eve broke God’s command. We have to be innocent, just like those small children. But how can we do that? Jesus died on the cross to take away your sin. If you will follow him, you can be just like the little children.
