“Let the little children come!”

The invitation is clear, and it comes without distinction. "Come. All are welcome. Don't hinder the children - God's children of all ages. Don't get in the way of anyone who wants to be with Jesus."

Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” – Matthew 19:14

So this is all I have to share today. One simple photograph. But it’s enough. Fact is it’s more than enough. And it doesn’t only apply to the chronologically young. You see, we’re all welcome; we’re all God’s children. And Jesus says, categorically, unequivocally, “Don’t put anything in the way.”

The invitation is clear, and it comes without qualification. “Come. All are welcome. Don’t hinder the children – God’s children of all ages (and that means you). Don’t get in the way of anyone who wants to be with Jesus.”

I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. – Romans 8:38-39


Praising God. My grands – David and Beks – and friends….
