people were bringing little children to Him, for Him to touch them. the disciples scolded them, but when Jesus saw this, He was indignant and said to them, “LET THE LITTLE CHILDREN COME TO ME; DO NOT STOP THEM, FOR IT IS TO SUCH AS THESE THAT THE KINGDOM OF GOD BELONGS. In truth, I tell you, anyone who does not welcome the Kingdom of God like a child will never enter it.” THEN HE EMBRACED THEM, LAID HIS HANDS ON THEM, AND GAVE THEM HIS BLESSING.
— Mark 10:13-16 (NJB)
