Something Heavenly in Children

The child is humanity reduced to its simplest terms. Affectionate joy in children is perhaps the purest expression of social feeling. Jesus was indignant when the disciples thought children were not of sufficient importance to occupy his attention. Compared with the selfish ambition of grown-ups he felt something heavenly in children, a breath of the kingdom of God. They are nearer the kingdom than those whom the world has smudged. To inflict any spiritual injury on one of these little ones seemed to Jesus an inexpressible guilt.  Walter Rauschenbusch (1861-1918) American theologian and Baptist pastor
