‘He took the children in His arms and blessed them.’ Mark 10:16
In Biblical time, children were unimportant in society. When numbers of people were listed, women and children were not included in the figures. The disciples must have been so amazed that Jesus placed such an importance on children. Our youth pastor always puts always puts children and young people first. If I’m talking to him and a young person comes along, he stops being with me and give all his attention to the youngster.
