Children Crying Out in the Temple

Posted by Scott T. Brown of NCFIC

Here is an example of normal life among the people of God – children are included. And He said to them, "It is written, 'My house shall be called a house of prayer,' but you have made it a 'den of thieves.' " Then the blind and the lame came to Him in the temple, and He healed them. But when the chief priests and scribes saw the wonderful things that He did, and the children crying out in the temple and saying, "Hosanna to the Son of David!" they were indignant and said to Him, "Do You hear what these are saying?" And Jesus said to them, "Yes. Have you never read, 'Out of the mouth of babes and nursing infants You have perfected praise'?" (Matt.21:13-16, NKJV)

(Thank you, Rev. Brown, for once again pointing out the importance of having families united in worship.  How the church misses out when they segregate the children and fracture the families during worship services. )
