My Reflection for Saturday March 1, Seventh Week in Ordinary Time, Mark 10:13-16

+ + + + +  + +
Gospel: Mark 10:13-16
People were bringing children to Jesus that he might touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this he became indignant and said to them, “Let the children come to me; do not prevent them, for the Kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Amen, I say to you, whoever does not accept the Kingdom of God like a child will not enter it.” Then he embraced the children and blessed them, placing his hands on them.

Reflection:
According to an explanation there was a valid reason why the children were prevented by the disciples from going to Jesus. But Jesus saw how the children wanted to go to Him so He broke the barrier that separates Him and the children by letting them go to Him. Jesus did not only allowed the children to go to Him. He even embraced them, blessed them and placed His hands upon them.  

This is Jesus for you and me, ever willing to be disturbed by anyone. Ever willing to embrace, bless and lovingly place His guiding hand upon us. Jesus is not a distant God, He is a God that is with us; a God that is very sensitive to our needs and prayers.

Therefore let us always go to Him with reckless abandon like little children for He is always there for us. Sometimes we don’t feel the love of Jesus for the reason that we don’t go to Him with the trusting attitude of a child. We don’t go to Him with the humility of a child.

In the last sentence of the gospel Jesus embraced, blessed and placed His hands on them. If you’re not yet doing these acts of love to your children, why don’t you do it to them? It will surely give them a sense of security and assurance that they are always loved by you and that you're always there for them. The same feeling of security and love that Jesus always generously showers upon us.

Do you always pray for your children and do you always embrace them?
