Jesus Showed His Affection for Children

Matthew 19:13-15


Christ blessed the children who were brought to Him.

He laid His hands on them and prayed for them.

The disciples did not understand Christ.

Then Jesus Christ did something quite special.


He spoke His attitude with eloquence.

If you live with childlike simplicity,

You belong to the Kingdom of Heaven.

We can learn a lot from Christ and children.


Let’s give piggyback rides while we’re able.

It’s more fun than horses from a stable.

Swing sets with a slide are a lot of fun.

Time with children is a game to be won.


Children and grandchildren are a blessing.

The movie “Jesus” has Debra Messing.
