The Jewish people looked upon children as being a blessing from God and not a burden as many see them in America today. Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD; and the fruit of the womb is His reward (Psalm 127:3). It was customary for parents to bring their children to the rabbis to be blessed. In the same way, it was reasonable that they should bring their children to Jesus who welcomed them all, even though many of them did not have the understanding to desire His blessing or to be moved with holy desire and faith.
