Let the Children Come to Me!

Then he embraced the children and blessed them, placing his hands on them.

Mark 10:16

This scripture verse reminds me of the song I wrote, Talk to Jesus my guiding light.” The last verse goes like this: “Jesus calls us his children, Jesus encourages me to smile, Jesus loves me abundantly, Jesus’ presence is peace for you and me. The refrain then is Talk to Jesus in the morning, talk to Jesus in the night, talk to Jesus my mindful moments, talk to Jesus my guiding light.”

In Mark’s gospel, Jesus became indignant when his disciples rebuked the crowd for bringing their children to Jesus so that he might touch them. “Let the children come to me, do not prevent them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Amen, I say to you, whoever does not accept the Kingdom of God like a child will not enter it. Then he embraced the children and blessed them, placing his hands on them.

Jesus’ presence is peace for you and me!
