Did Jesus ever get angry with children?
"People were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them." Mark 10:13-16
As we can see from this passage, Jesus got angry with His disciples when they were preventing families bringing their children to Him.
Can you see Jesus' love for children in this passage?
Can you see His desire to be with them, to pick them up, to call them by name, to bless them...
What immense love Jesus has for children...
This is why we do VBS every year. We want to join Jesus on His all-out-search-and-rescue mission for children.
Let's invite any family you know with elementary-aged children.
Let's pray for each child that comes.
Let's pray Jesus adopts dozens of children into His family this week.
On an all-out-search-and-rescue mission together,
