The kingdom of heaven belongs to children

But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven.”
Matthew 19:14

Jesus loved children during his earthly life, as seen in this verse. He was blessing some little ones and his protege's tried to stop him and then he said the statement recorded above. We can only imagine what must have prompted these guys to try to steer Jesus away from the children. Somehow they thought that Jesus time was better spent amongst adults and not children, but Jesus strongly disagreed. The idea that being under age would disqualify you from Jesus touch, his fellowship, his blessing, or his attention is a mistake.

Not only are children fully qualified to receive Jesus touch, but Jesus also makes the statement that to children belong the kingdom of heaven. The notion that children are too young to receive the kingdom of heaven and it's treasures is false. The truth may be the opposite.
