Another time, some people brought children to Jesus for him to lay his hands on them & bless them (154).
But Jesus’ students started scolding those people for doing this.
When Jesus noticed this, he was angry with his students & said to them: “Let the children come to me, and don’t stop them. God’s kingdom is intended for them, too.
“In fact, unless you receive God as your king with childlike faith, you will never enter God’s kingdom.”
Then Jesus began taking the children in his arms & blessing them.
