Many people gathered around Jesus. They wanted to hear Him tell stories. They wanted to hear Him teach about heaven.

When people were sick, Jesus healed them. He healed people who could not see. He healed people who could not hear.

One day some people brought their little children to see Jesus. They wanted Him to give their children a blessing. Jesus’s disciples told the people not to bother Jesus. They thought He was too busy.

Jesus was not too busy. He told the disciples to let the children come to Him. He said that the kingdom of heaven belongs to people who are like little children.

Jesus loves all children. It doesn’t matter who you are, what you look like, or where you live. Jesus loves you!
