    Some people took their children to Jesus so He could bless them.

    But Jesus’s disciples told the people to leave. They didn’t want Jesus to be bothered.

    Jesus said to let the children come to Him. He said that everyone needs to be like a child to go to heaven.

    Jesus blessed and prayed for the children. Jesus loves children!

    Jesus loves me. I come to Him by learning about Him and trying to follow Him.
