In ancient society, children were not highly valued which seems to explain in part why the disciples are blocking off their access to Jesus. But Jesus didn’t share that same attitude; instead, He boiled over with anger toward His disciples and demanded that the babies be permitted to be brought unto Him. When they did come, He embraced them and blessed them. This message explores the theme of spiritual mercies for the children of believers and for all who would enter the kingdom of God by grace.
