"Jesus said, 'Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.'" Matthew 19:14
I love children! I love their energy and passion for life. I believe that children are an inheritance from the Lord. This morning I'll be watching my daughter Katie Beth at her awards banquet. She has done such a good job in school, and I am so proud of her. I know many of you will be doing the same thing with your children at this time of year, and I know that you are thankful, too. Children have a special place in our hearts and in our world. They are special to Jesus, too! People brought their children to Jesus so He could place His hands on them and pray for them. The disciples didn't like it and tried to get them to leave, but Jesus rebuked them! He wanted to pray for and bless the little children. I want to follow His example. I will pray for my children and all the little children. They are an inheritance and a blessing from the Lord!
