Some parents were bringing their young children to Jesus so he could bless them. The disciples tried to turn them away.
Jesus was upset with them and said “Don’t prevent children from coming to me. The kingdom of heaven is made up of people who have a childlike faith. I tell you truthfully, if you do not welcome the kingdom of God in the same manner as a child, you will never get in.”
After taking the children in his arms, he laid his hands on their heads and blessed them.
