Jesus welcomes the Children

Lesson: Let us come to Jesus

1. Tell the story of Jesus and the children from Luke 18:15-17. 
  • As Jesus was busy teaching one day, some people wanted to bring their children and babies to see Jesus. They wanted Jesus to touch their babies and bless them. But as they tried to come near, some of the disciples saw them and stopped them. Maybe they thought that Jesus wouldn’t want to be interrupted by a drooling baby or a grubby kid. What if they started crying and disturbed everyone else?
  • But Jesus saw them and said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not stop them, because the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these." 
  • Isn’t that wonderful? Jesus wasn’t too busy for the children. He wasn’t too important for little toddlers. He said that the Kingdom of God belonged to them, so they should be allowed to come whenever they wanted.
