His Joy in Children

Children are such a pleasure to Jesus.
Jesus is such a pleasure to His Father.
No matter how it may seem inappropriate,
to Jesus children are not a bother.
They are young and innocent,
with hearts ready to forgive.
They have such a lively energy.
They definitely teach joy to live.
Open hearts, open minds, wide-eyed,
they eagerly take in His words.
They enjoy the love in His stories.
They will remember what they’ve heard.
Be careful not to offend even one.
Be careful not to destroy.
They are His special treasure.
They are His delight and joy.
