Matthew 19:13 - 19:15

Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

In Matthew 19:13-15, people brought children to Jesus hoping that he would bless them. However, the disciples rebuked the children, not seeing them as worthy recipients of Jesus' attention. In response to this, Jesus was greatly displeased and said, "Do not forbid little children coming me". Some argue that children are born in a state of sin, but Jesus believed that children were important and even had guardian angels looking over them.
