Jesus Ministered to Children and So Can You
As we reflect on the babe in swaddling clothes this Christmas, we should also reflect on the actions of the adult Savior, who asked His disciples to “suffer the little children to come unto me.” If He made time for them, so can we.
3 SIMPLE WAYS TO GET INVOLVED
As a Christmas gift, purchase a picture of Jesus Christ for your child’s room. Teach your child about the Savior’s love for him or her.
Set one night a week aside for just you and your children. Find ideas here.
Ask your children what they think you should pray about as a family.
“13 And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them.
14 But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.”
Mark 10: 13–14
