Your Heavenly Hugs

Text (Mark 10:16) And he took the children in his arms, put his hands on them and blessed them. (New International Version)

Thought starters
Come in close today, I am going to tell you how Jesus talked to children.

Do you ever hug and kiss your parents goodnight before you go to bed? Do you hug and kiss them goodbye before you go to school? As you get older you sometimes stop hugging and kissing when your friends are around.

What do hugs mean? It shows that your parents love you very much.

What happens when you don’t get as many hugs?

(Read text or tell the story beginning at verse 13)

Do you think that Jesus only blesses the children that Mark talked about? I believe that he blesses all children. Even today. Even here.

Wherever you go, whatever you do, always remember you can always get a heavenly hug from Jesus. Whether your parents are gone or not, just close your eyes and pray, that you really need a hug. Jesus is always listening to his children. He can’t wait to hear from you and give you that heavenly hug.

Hymn "Humble Praises, Holy Jesus" Dimitri Bortniansky

Prayer- Dear Jesus, Thank you for always being there for us. For your love for children and the heavenly hugs you give. Amen
