Text: Matthew 19:13-15
We get the words of Jesus wrong all the time, just like his earliest followers. When a group of children were hanging out with Jesus and having a great time, the disciples wanted to send them away for “bothering” Jesus. But Jesus knows children are the center of God’s love, not on the margins of it. Jesus sees children as keys to understanding everything that he is doing in and through the world. Jesus is inviting us into a delightful adventure of encountering the world with the fresh eyes of those who are seeing it for the first time.
