Welcome Little Children

13Then little children were being brought to him in order that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples spoke sternly to those who brought them; 14but Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.” 15And he laid his hands on them and went on his way. (Matthew 19:13-15, NRSV)

I always think about this passage when I hear that the kids are too loud in the sanctuary, or did you see what those kids were doing during worship?

I understand that we want to worship and we sometimes have issues hearing as we age, but if the children are not in worship, then how will they learn to worship?

And sometimes people worship differently than we do, and that doesn’t make them wrong and us right, it just means that we are different, and that is how God made us.

So be like Jesus and let the little children come and bless them, and I bet they will, in turn, bless you!
