Jesus blesses the children

One generation leaves another, that is logical, and our job will always be to make the next generation love God more than we have done. In Israel, a great custom was for parents to teach their children about the great works that God had done, so that they do not forget that God is great and powerful, and the same is our turn today, to teach our children that God has done great works.Sometimes I have worried a lot about the rhythm that our world carries, they really are things that scare, like perversity, arrogance, consumerism, entertainment, how all this is consuming our generation to a great extent. Imagine, there are countries where they have tried to prohibit prayer and reading the Bible, will we stop teaching our children at home who God is? No way.

On one occasion the children were brought before Jesus and His disciples were disturbed:

15 And they brought unto him also infants, that he would touch them: but when his disciples saw it, they rebuked them.

16 But Jesus called them unto him, and said, Suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.

17 Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child shall in no wise enter therein.

Luke 18:15-17

I want us to pay attention to verse 17, precisely when Jesus says: “Let the children come to me, and do not prevent it.” Are we today letting children come to Jesus? Do we develop methods in our churches so that children can learn more about Jesus or only bother when they make noise in the temple?

One way to let children come to Jesus is to teach them the Word of God and that way we are bringing them closer to God and His purpose.

Children from an early age learn to sin and that is why we must teach them at that early age to come to Jesus.
