April 8 – Our favorite thing about Jesus is…

… is the visual picture the following passage creates for us.
 
“let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such
as these that the Kingdom of Heaven belongs.”  Matthew 19:14
 
To us it seems like the Bible is written for the parents or adults and does not include a relationship with the kids.  We like how Jesus lets the little children come to him; although he was very weary and tired, he had time and love for them.  That gives us a good image of how Jesus loves us unconditionally, for who we are and how we are as a child.
 
Also, this serves as a good reminder for adults to believe as a child does, instead of getting caught up in only the grown up details of life.  Jesus reminds us that he has room for all of us.
 
This being said, it creates a fun image of adults as children of Jesus and having the care-free attitude about their faith and this is just how God wanted it to be.
