7th October 2012 Mark 10:12-16

People were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place his hands on them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” And he took the children in his arms, placed his hands on them and blessed them.

I've been in a little Twitter debate today about what and who constitutes a Christian blog/writer and I think this reading really cuts to the issue.  Jesus embraced the children and told us all to be as open and accepting of three world and himself as they are.

When we decide to have lists of who is in or out of anything Christian we are limiting Jesus aim and call.  Let us welcome all and value all.
