Matthew 19:13–15

Little children were being brought to Jesus in order that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples spoke sternly to those who brought them; but Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.” And he laid his hands on them and went on his way.


• Jesus invites us to come to him with a pure and innocent hear like a child. How do I respond to his invitation?

• Would I ask for Jesus’ blessing in my prayer today?
