"When Jesus saw this, He was indignant. He said to them, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kindfom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not recieve the kingdom of God like a little child will not enter it. " And he took the child in His arms, put His hands on them and blessed them. Mark 10:14-16
I wish I knew how many times Jesus was indignant. It would be an interesting study... to compare my "indignants" with His. Maybe embarassing.
Maybe it was being with children all weekend... but it made me wonder. How do little children recieve the kingdom of heaven? What are some of the differences in the way they accept it in contrast to how adults accept it? I watch my own children, and have pondered just a couple thoughts, .... but I am really interested to learn from thoughts you may have.
