Jesus encountered lots of children throughout His ministry. He took children in His arms and blessed them. He used the gift of a child’s bread and fish to feed more than 5,000 people. He said that we must become humble like them to enter the kingdom of heaven.
Caring for children is not easy, and it often goes unappreciated. But to everyone who lovingly cares for children and leads them to Jesus, His words remain precious and true: “Whoever welcomes one of these little children in My name welcomes Me” (Mark 9:37).
Jesus loves children. He invites us all to be the children of God, and we are safe in His love forever.
