The Importance of Children Aug 19 2012
"...Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." - Matthew 19:14
Parents pushed and shoved their children, hoping the famous man would touch them. His assistants, thinking they were protecting Him from unwanted demands, tried to shoo the kids away, but this important man was indignant with His assistants. He said, "Let the children come to Me." He took them in His arms and hugged them, and the kids loved Him. The man's name was Jesus. He showed His well-intentioned disciples how important children are to God.
Question: Dad...Mom... do you make time for your kids like Jesus did? The man who lived an incredibly busy life but was not too busy for children?
Very often, a child's importance is shown when we give a listening ear or a hug, when time is what they want and need. When it comes to your kids, ask the Lord to help you be like Jesus. No job is more important than that; even if you're the Son of God.
