Jesus was greatly displeased that His disciples were blocking the blessing of these children, so He addressed their attitudes, and then, “He took them up in His arms, laid His hands on them, and blessed them” (v. 16). Jesus refused to allow His disciples to stop the parents and their children from getting their blessing. Instead, Jesus did four things: He picked them up, He held them in His arms, He touched them, and then He blessed them.
