"Let the Little Children Come"

  Let the little children Come, painting of father and son hands, Jesus extending hand to child painting, Mindi Oaten Art

 

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

~

With tender compassion and a heart full of boundless warmth, Jesus extended his arms to the little ones, inviting them into his radiant presence.

As the gentle shepherd of souls, he recognized the innate purity and innocence that resides in children, a purity that mirrors the very essence of divinity itself. In that sacred moment, the cares and complexities of adulthood melted away, leaving only the radiant light of youthful wonder and unbridled joy.

With each child who approached, Jesus shared not only his presence but also a profound lesson for all of humanity. He imparted a truth so deep and universal that it echoes through the ages: "Unless you become like these little children, you cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven."

In those simple yet weighty words, Jesus revealed a profound spiritual insight that transcends time and place. He reminded us that it is in our childlike qualities – qualities of trust, humility, and unending curiosity – that we find our pathway. Just as children approach life with open hearts, unburdened by the weight of past regrets or future anxieties, so too should we approach our spiritual journey.
