Mud on Boots
13 Then children were brought to him so that he might lay his hands on them and pray for them, but the talmidim (disciples/students) rebuked the people bringing them. 14 However, Yeshua said, “Let the children come to me, don’t stop them, for the Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these.” 15 Then, after laying his hands on them, he went on his way.
We already know that children are precious in the eyes of the Father. Jesus taught the followers to become like children.
Here again, we see that Jesus wants the children to be with Him. He cares for them and prays for them. "LET them come to me..." "The Kingdom of Heaven belongs to such as these."
Children definitely have a faith and trust that is only from the Father. As people grow up, face difficulties in the world, watch actions around them... doubts form. We don't "see" things the way we used too.
Don't turn children away. Love them. Care for them. Make sure they understand WHO created them. Let them bring you a fresh understanding of the Father's love.
Most importantly, PRAY for them. Some of them probably feel they have "mud on their boots" (the picture I chose) and don't believe they are worth anything. Help them make the "mud fun" and bring JOY and LAUGHTER to their spirit. Don't let them walk around thinking poorly of who they are.
There really is not much to say about these verses. They speak for themselves. Ask yourself today how you can make the difference in the heart of a child. Ask yourself today for a child to speak LIFE into and pray for. Your words of TRUTH can make a difference.
