Let the Little Children Come to Me

Little Children and Star

And he (Jesus) said: "I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.  (Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.  And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.  But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.  "Woe to the world because of the things that cause people to sin! Such things must come, but woe to the man through whom they come! ..."See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.  Matt 18:3-7,10)

"Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me (Jesus); and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me."  (Mk 9:37)

People were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. 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 kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it." And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them.  (Mk 10:13-16)
