Time for Children
Reach Out To The Young
Mark 10:13-16 [Jesus] took them up in His arms, laid His hands on them, and blessed them. —Mark 10:16
Jesus took time for children. He was "greatly displeased" when the disciples wanted to keep the little ones away from Him, and He said, "Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them" (Mark 10:13-14). He even said that we all must receive His kingdom as children do (v.15).
A 2004 Barna survey showed that 85 percent of Christians began their relationship with Jesus before age 14. So take time for the children. Reach out to the young. —Anne Cetas
To those who are teaching the gospel,
With love in their hearts for its truth,
Comes the gentle reminder from heaven,
"Forget not the children and youth." —Anon.
Strong faith is often found in the heart of a child.
