One day some parents brought their little children to Jesus so he could touch them and bless them, but the disciples told them not to bother him.
Then Jesus called for the children and said to the disciples, "Let the children come to me. Don't stop them! For the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 17I assure you, anyone who doesn't have their kind of faith will never get into the Kingdom of God."
