I’ve been eating humble pie since last week’s Bible story so I can get extra treats. And I still don’t have any.
And humble pie doesn’t taste very good.
Maybe if I can figure out a way to get to the top of the refrigerator I can pull all the treats down – and eat them.
What!? You’re going to tell me a story where Jesus rebuked his disciples?
And he’s going to rebuke me too if I do what I just said?
Do I get extra treats if He rebukes me?
Okay, I’ll listen.
People were bringing little children to Jesus to have Him place His hands on them and pray for them, but the disciples rebuked the people who brought them.
Did the disciples give all those people treats?
What do you mean, rebuke doesn’t mean giving out treats? What else could it mean?
When Jesus saw this, He was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”
Is it alright if I hinder those little children so I can get some loves?
I am listening.
Jesus said, “I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”
I can act as childish as you want.
What do you mean, sit and listen?
Jesus took the children in His arms, put His hands on them, and blessed them.
Alright! Jesus gives out loves.
I’m standing in line.
