THE KINGDOM IS FOR A CHILD... PART 1
But Jesus said, "Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." (Matthew 19:14 NASB)
Many people...and not just the lost secular ones, but Christians look askance at young people and children as to be quiet and "wait their turn". It is NOT so in the Kingdom of God. Do NOT despise, look down or treat our children - who seek the Lord - as those who don't know what they are talking about. They could well be saved and called by the Lord than some adult in a pew, including the guy up there preaching!
Here is the LORD JESUS on this from Matthew 18 NLT: "10 "Beware that you don't despise a single one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels are always in the presence of my heavenly Father. 11 12 "If a shepherd has one hundred sheep, and one wanders away and is lost, what will he do? Won't he leave the ninety-nine others and go out into the hills to search for the lost one? 13 And if he finds it, he will surely rejoice over it more than over the ninety-nine that didn't wander away! 14 In the same way, it is not my heavenly Father's will that even one of these little ones should perish.
