Dia das Crianças
But Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven."
When the high priests and the scribes saw the wonders that he did and the children shouting, "God save the Son of David!" they were angry
and said to him, "Do you hear what these are saying?" Jesus said, "Yes. Have you never read, 'Out of the mouths of babes and sucklings thou hast perfected praise'?"
1 AT that time the disciples came to Jesus saying, "Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?"
2 He called to him a little child and stood him in the midst of them
3 and said, "I tell you truly, unless you turn and become like the little children, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven.
4 He who humbles himself like this little child, he is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
I tell you truly whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will not enter it."
Then he took them into his arms and blessed them, putting his hands on them.
Then he took a little child and placed him in the midst of them, and, putting his arms around him, said,
"Whoever receives one of such little children in my name receives me; and whoever receives me receives not me, but him who sent me."
See to it that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you, in heaven their angels continually behold the face of my Father in heaven.
Children, obey your parents in everything, for this is pleasing in the Lord.
Fathers, do not irritate your children, for they may lose heart.
1 CHILDREN, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right.
2 "Honor your father and your mother." This is the first commandment with a promise,
3 "That it may go well with you and you may be long-lived in the land."
4 And you, fathers, do not irritate your children, but bring them up in the education and admonition of the Lord.
