Then children were brought to Him so He might put His hands on them and pray. But the disciples rebuked them. Then Jesus said, “Leave the children alone, and don’t try to keep them from coming to Me, because the kingdom of heaven is made up of people like this.”
Matthew 19:13-14 HCSB
We are not to keep the children, or anyone, from coming to Jesus; to do so will face the rebuking of the Lord Himself. We are to come to the Lord as children, for that is what we who are called by the Lord truly are; God’s children, and as His children, we are not to be denied access to the Father by anyone.
