by Kelly Crawford from her blog Generation Cedar – What Makes Jesus Indignant?
What makes Jesus indignant? Making fun of abuse survivors is probably pretty high up on that list.
“And they brought young children to him, that he should touch them: and his disciples rebuked those that brought them. 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. Verily I say unto you, Whosoever shall not receive the kingdom of God as a little child, he shall not enter therein. And he took them up in his arms, put his hands upon them, and blessed them.” Mark 10:13-16
John MacArthur expounded on this passage and his points stirred some of my own thoughts. If you’ve read my blog at all, you know I feel like Christians, generally speaking, have adopted a jaded view of children. The comments made about larger than normal families reveal that we really do view children more as commodities–and therefore, too many are a burden. My ongoing prayer is that those who proclaim Christ (myself included) will imitate Him.
