Jesus Loves the Little Children

Screen Shot 2016-04-05 at 4.18.10 PMOne of my favorite stories in the Bible is where the disciples were trying to protect Jesus, and keep people away from him.  Unfortunately, they sent the wrong people away – the little children.  One of the things I love most about my faith is the fact that Jesus put children first – always.  The lesson here is that we are to do the same thing, but we don’t.

It is also about unconditional love.

In this day and age, Christians, the truly godly ones, are strongly lacking in love of any sort.  They don’t quite grasp the fact that Christ loved the sinner, hated the sin, but never turned his back on the sinner.  You can win souls to him if you treat those you find not to be all that pure like dirt, yet, stand up for those who are part of the inside group.

Nothing enrages me more than the Duggar family. The very same people who damn the LGBT community has no problem sticking up for Josh Duggar – pedophile, and give his parents a pass when it comes to the fact that they allowed him to molest his siblings – and still stand up for him.  These same people treat the LGBT community like dirt, yet defend rapists and child molesters.  They defend godly men who rape and harass women who are under their religious control, but would basically spit on a gay wedding cake.

Christ is about unconditional love. Period.

Jesus calls the children dear,
“Come to me and never fear,
For I love the little children of the world;
I will take you by the hand,
Lead you to the better land,
For I love the little children of the world.”

Jesus loves the little children,
All the children of the world.
Red and yellow, black and white,
All are precious in His sight,
Jesus loves the little children of the world.

Jesus died for all the children,
All the children of the world.
Red and yellow, black and white,
All are precious in His sight,
Jesus died for all the children of the world.]

Jesus is the Shepherd true,
And He’ll always stand by you,
For He loves the little children of the world;
He’s a Savior great and strong,
And He’ll shield you from the wrong,
For He loves the little children of the world.

I am coming, Lord, to Thee,
And Your soldier I will be,
For You love the little children of the world;
And Your cross I’ll always bear,
And for You I’ll do and dare,
For You love the little children of the world.
