Jesus loved children. He even touched them, something that many people will not do, because they do not know what to do, and children make them uncomfortable. However, Jesus knew that He had nothing to fear from children, and children loved Him. Watch any young child learn about Jesus and you will see their love for Him. After His own disciples tried to keep children from Him, the Bible says,

And He laid His hands on them and departed from there (Matthew 19.15).

Do not forbid children going to Jesus and do not keep Him from them, but see to it that they attend Bible classes. See how it transforms their lives.
