[Jesus said], “Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it.”
Sometimes we get caught up with petty details, and we miss the larger picture of things. Some Pharisees question Jesus about divorce and cite ancient laws that were biased against women. Jesus makes the broader statement that we must not try to break apart what God has joined. However, he goes further when people bring children to him. Jesus challenges those who want to keep the children away. “The reign of God belongs to them,” Jesus says. In the midst of wondering about details we must not lose sight of compassion and caring for one another.
