Topic: Permit Children
Text: Mark 10:13-16 (KJV)
Key Verse: “But when Jesus saw it, he was much displeased, and said unto them, Suffer the little children to come unto me, and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God“ (Mark 10:14).
MESSAGE DCLM Daily Manna 9 November 2018:
A 19-year-old youth who committed murder and was awaiting the pronouncement of his death sentence was asked by the judge, “have you anything to say before I give my final judgment? ” “Yes, your honour, I have something to say. Am I alone responsible for the crime I committed? My father put the first bottle of liquor in my hand.
My parents taught me that there is nothing to religion. I never saw a Bible in my home. I never heard my parents pray together before we retired for the day. Yes, they fed me – my physical flesh, but my spirit they stabbed and starved. My parents are responsible as well as I am. Let the law take its full course. May God have mercy on my parents’ souls and mine.” DCLM Daily Manna 9 November 2018
Wise and conscious parents, like the ones in the text, will bring their children to Jesus. Unfortunately, it was those who should know better that wanted to hinder them from getting to Jesus. When Jesus saw this, He was much displeased and instructed that children should be allowed to come to Him because children and childlike minded people are destined for His kingdom.

Parents keep wondering why children and youths of today are so wayward, especially those of ministers, pastors and Christian workers. It is common to see parents pampering and shielding children from church activities. Even when they come to church, many are distracted by academic works they could have planned better for and damned social media engagements.
Good parenting must of necessity include diligence in preparing the children by introducing them to Jesus. We must repent and redirect our efforts to properly bring our children to Christ.
Thought For The Day: Christ, not social media, should be the first and final recourse for youths.
Bible Reading In One Year: Matthew 26; Mark 14
