Mark 10:13-16 (NRSV)
13 People were
bringing little children to him in order that he might touch them;
and the disciples spoke sternly to them.
14 But when Jesus
saw this, he was indignant and said to them, "Let the little
children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these
that the kingdom of God belongs.
15 Truly I tell
you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child
will never enter it."
16 And he took
them up in his arms, laid his hands on them, and blessed them.
