THE TOUCH UPON CHILDREN
Mark 10:13-16 And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them. (14) But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.
I am amazed at the desire of children to learn about Jesus and get to know him. They love to hear stories about Him and to sing songs about Him. I think neglecting to take children to church and Sunday School is to deny them of one of the greatest experiences of their lives.
We ourselves ought to follow their example. They sought to be near Him and desired his company. The parents wanted Him to touch their children. We should seek for our children to be able to sit at the feet of Jesus and have Him touch their lives.
They trusted Him and He blessed them. I believe He still blesses those who trust Him as a child and He will touch our lives and bless us.
