Mark chapter 10

Jesus and the children

Verses 12-16

Families are important. And children are important too.

Jesus had already taught his *disciples about the importance of children (Mark 9:36-37). But the *disciples still wanted Jesus to be with the *Pharisees and other important people. So when people brought their children to Jesus, the *disciples tried to hurry them away.

Jesus was angry. The people had brought their children because they wanted Jesus to pray for them. God loved those children.

And if people want God to rule their lives, they too must become like little children. Those people must want to learn. They must want to do good things. They must ask for Godís help.

Next part: Jesus and the rich man
