The Little Children and Jesus
Read: Luke 18:15-17
Special Verse: But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. – Luke 18:16
Discuss: Why do you think the disciples tried to keep children away from Jesus? What is the kingdom of God? Why did Jesus use children as an example of faith? Children are experts at trusting and receiving love without worrying that they need to do or be anything special to earn it. If you were to meet Jesus, he would be so glad to see you! How would you behave? Would you be nervous? Joyful? Shy? Playful?
