Jesus Blesses the Children

The disciples prevented children from coming to Christ

While the Savior was with His disciples, some people wanted Him to bless their children. The disciples told the people not to bring their children to Jesus. Mark 10:13

Jesus said let them come

Jesus Christ loves children, and He scolded the disciples for trying to send them away. He told the disciples to let the children come to Him. He also told the disciples they should be like little children. Then they could live with God in heaven. Mark 10:14–15
