Jesus loves to spend time with His people.
One day, while He was busy, parents and children came, hoping for Jesus to see them. His disciples shooed them away, but He went after the beloved children and assured them that He was never too busy for them.
Jesus wants to spend time with you and your family too! Many times we pray before bed, and ask Jesus to keep us safe while we sleep, which He loves to do. We might invite Him to dinner by praying before eating, and He enjoys that as well. But just like we want to spend time with the people we love so much, Jesus wants to spend more time with us!
Some ways to spend time with Jesus are simple, like praying and singing songs of praise, but there are so many other ways we can include Jesus in our life!
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:14)
What ways do you like to spend time with your parents? Friends? Could you spend time with Jesus in any of these ways?
