“Then little children were brought to Him that He might put His hands on them and pray, but the disciples rebuked them. But Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.’ And He laid His hands on them and departed from there.” Matthew 19:13, 14
Picture a child running to the arms of Jesus captured by His acceptance and love. A child comes openly not with an attitude of superiority or with a list of our accomplishments! He is drawn like we are by God’s patience and kindness shown in His love.
From Michelangelo to Goya, many great artists have illustrated children in the arms of Jesus. For centuries these works of art of a beautiful loving Savior have been found inspiring.
Are you bringing children to Jesus? Each time we speak up for life and defend babies in the womb we are speaking God’s love. Matthew tells of the situation in which people sought out the blessing of Jesus for their children. We are told there were “great multitudes” following Jesus at this time. Can you imagine being so forward as to fight the crowds and then to be rebuked by the disciples?
How do our crowds look today? There are loud voices that speak against loving children in the womb and bringing them to Jesus. They have a message that only a wanted child has the right to be born.
