- 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 (KJV)
I will never understand how anyone could hate a child.
