Life Sunday 2011: Hands that Knit - Arms that Hold
Why would anyone want to keep children from the arms of Jesus? The disciples seemed to be doing just that in Mark 10: 13-16. Perhaps they thought they were doing Jesus a favor. After all, people were always crowding around Him and now all these children? Give Jesus a break!
But Jesus was “indignant” with His disciples over this. These children were precious. They were the work of His hands, knit together in their mothers’ wombs. Jesus uses these as a picture of all who are vulnerable and in need. Just as we are completely dependent upon Jesus for life, so we are completely dependent upon Him for the new life of His Kingdom. Jesus does not want anyone turned away. He desires to welcome and bless the vulnerable.
You and your congregation can share Jesus’ love for the vulnerable on a Sanctity of Human Life Sunday.
