Suffer the little children

In church last Sunday, the Pastor preached about loving Jesus as a child would love Him; and at first that confused me, so I came home and checked my bible about children and I came across this:

[The Little Children and Jesus] People were also bringing babies to Jesus for him to place his hands on them. When the disciples saw this, they rebuked them. But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”  Luke 18: 15-17.

…And that helped me understand; we are not act like a child, but to love as a child.  In other words, love with the innocence of a child, the faith of a child.  We still must act as an adult and take care of our adult responsibilities, but love with an innocent love, the love of a child.

Mumbles says,

Teach your children well.

God’s peace.
