A Piece of Heaven

Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, … for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these." Matthew 19:14

When important dignitaries visit a city, they rarely make time for children other than the proverbial baby’s hug and kiss. Those with little money to contribute, and no voting capabilities are seldom made room for. Yet wherever Jesus went, children were not far behind. His close friends were more often than not, annoyed at the persistence of the youth. But Jesus rebuked their annoyance, and gladly spent time with the children, explaining their identity and inheritance to them.

Our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. Romans 8:18
