Kid2_2You’ve got to love children. They have such a great sense of humour. No wondered Jesus loved them.

I love the story about Jesus and some children that is recorded in the Gospel of Mark (10:13-16) … "One day some parents brought their children to Jesus so he could touch them and bless them, but the disciples told them not to bother him. But when Jesus saw what was happening, he was very displeased with his disciples. He said to them, ‘Let the children come to me. Don’t stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I assure you, anyone who doesn’t have their kind of faith will never get into the Kingdom of God.’ Then he took the children into his arms and placed his hands on their heads and blessed them." [NLT]
