Salvation Cannot Be Earned

It was customary for a mother to bring her children to a rabbi for a blessing, and that is why

 these mothers gathered around Jesus.

The Disciples, however thought the children were unworthy of the Master's time-less important

than whatever else he was doing. But Jesus welcomed them, because little children have the

kind of faith and trust needed to enter God's Kingdom. It is important that we introduce our

children to Jesus and not assume they will enter just knowing about Him.

Jesus wants his people to enjoy prayer by delighting in his company, and trust him explicitly.
