God's Word for Monday, 7/23/18: Child-like Faith

Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 19:13-14 (KJV)

One day children were brought to Jesus in the hope that he would lay hands on them and pray over them. The disciples shooed them off. But Jesus intervened: “Let the children alone, don’t prevent them from coming to me. God’s kingdom is made up of people like these.”

Matthew 19:13-14 (AMP)

You're welcome, Linda. :)

TB, no one expects children to be perfect. It's a learning process, and everyone learns at their own rate. It's okay. :)
