Jesus loves the little children,
All the children of the world.
Red and yellow, black and white,
They are precious in His sight.
Jesus loves the little children of the world.
Anonymous or C.H. Woolston, around 1900
Read Matthew 19:13-15
(This is one of the first songs we learn at church, but that doesn’t make it any less profound. Jesus does not prefer any group over another. He does not prefer any status or station above another. He loves all. This means the rich and powerful as well as the poor and powerless. We are to go and do likewise.)
