Helping Like Jesus

Jesus Included Others

Apostles testify of Christ

One day a group of children came to see Jesus Christ. His followers told them to go away. But Jesus said, “Suffer the little children to come unto me” (Mark 10:14). He didn’t want to leave them out. He wanted to spend time with them because He loved them.

The Savior held the children in His arms. He blessed them. He helped them feel important.


I was feeling lonely at recess, so I asked someone if they would play with me. We started playing with chalk, and more people came, and it was so much fun! If you feel lonely, you can ask someone to play with you!
