International Day of Prayer for Children

The reading for today came from Mark 10:13-16.

Jesus got angry with the disciples when they tried to turn the children away. They thought that Jesus was too busy to deal with children and that children weren't important enough for Him to have to deal with so they tried to hinder the children form getting to Him.

The disciples not only hindered the children by shooing them away but also by their example.

Do we hinder the children by either shooing them away or setting a bad example?

We are Christ's representatives to the world. We need to be Christ to those around us, especially the children.
