As was often the case, Jesus' disciples did not understand. Perhaps they were trying to protect the Lord's dignity as a rabbi or felt the Messiah should not be bothered by children. Ironically, the children, in their simple trust and dependence, had a more heavenly attitude than the disciples did. Just before this episode, Jesus had been teaching his followers that the humility of children boldly contrasts the arrogance of the Pharisees and religious rulers:. Jesus loved children for their innocence.
He valued their simple, uncomplicated trust, and absence of pride. He taught that entering heaven is not about great scholarly knowledge, admirable accomplishments, or social status. It only requires faith in God. Immediately after this lesson, Jesus instructed a rich young man about humility, continuing this theme of childlike acceptance of the gospel. The young man went away sad because he was unable to trust fully in God instead of his wealth.
