People brought children to Jesus for him to touch them. The disciples reprimanded them. But Jesus was angry when he saw it, and said to them, ‘Let the children come to me! Don’t stop them! The kingdom of God belongs to people like that. I’m telling you the truth: anyone who doesn’t receive the kingdom of God like a child will never get into it.’
And he hugged them, laid his hands on them, and blessed them.
