Bring the children to Jesus
As for me and my household,
we will serve the LORD.
In today’s Gospel (Matthew 19:13-15), our Lord give this gentle command:
Let the children come to me, and do not prevent them;
for the Kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.
There seems to be no shortage of things to do in our busy world, especially for those with families.
Today’s readings remind us that among the most important things for us to do as Christians is to bring children to Christ.
What can you and I do today – in our own households and beyond - to help a child come closer to Jesus?
