Matthew 19:13-15

Then 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.

Reflection

• Do I see little children as blessing from God?

• How do I understand Jesus’ saying that the kingdom of heaven belongs to little children?
