When the children were brought to Jesus as told in Mark chapter 10, the disciples scolded those parents, telling them to leave Jesus alone.
But when Jesus saw what was happening he was angry with the disciples saying “let the children come to me. Don’t stop them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to those who are like these children.”
In today’s Family Worship message Pastor Paul Geerling begins a two part series where he unpacks what God loves about children. You can listen to Paul’s message in the audio player below – or you can subscribe to the Family Worship podcast in your podcast app.
