You are very important

Have you ever thought people were too busy to pay attention to you? Maybe Dad was doing something on his computer, Mom was talking on the phone, or your teacher said to be quiet. Maybe sometimes even your best friends don’t want to play with you. You’ve got something important to say, but it seems that they’re acting like you’re not all that important.

Did you know that Jesus thought little kids were really important? One time some children were coming to see him, but some of the adults who were with him said, “No! Go away” (see Luke 18:15–17).

They were called “disciples”—people who wanted to follow Jesus and learn from him. They thought Jesus was so important that he shouldn’t be bothered with kids interrupting him.
