Jesus Blesses the Children

Scripture Passage: Mark 10:13-16

Jesus thought children were very important and valuable to God.  Jesus was not happy when the disciples wanted to turn the small children away. The mothers had brought them to Jesus for Him to bless them. The disciples did not understand that the children were as important to Jesus as their parents. He told the disciples that we all need to have the faith and trust like a little child to enter the kingdom of God. So He took them up in His arms and blessed them.
