Jesus and Children

To read the Bible in a year, read Mark 10:1-31.
I heard a preacher say one time say that a leader in the church must love children because Jesus did. A leader who does not love children does not realize that he prepares the church for the future. These same things ought to be said about any Christian. Look at Jesus in action and then try to deny that action for yourself. Mark wrote this about Jesus and children, “And He took them up in His arms, laid His hands on them, and blessed them” (Mark 10:16). He touched them and blessed them. Are children sometimes difficult to deal with? Oh, yes! Are adults sometimes difficult to deal with? Oh, yes!
The key is for us to learn how to handle both. Use Jesus as an example for everything that you do.
