Little Children Are Brought to Jesus

15 People were also bringing babies to Jesus. They wanted him to touch them. When the disciples saw this, they told the people to stop.
16 But Jesus asked the children to come to him. "Let the little children come to me," he said. "Don't keep them away. God's kingdom belongs to people like them.
17 What I'm about to tell you is true. Anyone who will not receive God's kingdom like a little child will never enter it."
