Mark 10:16 ” And He took the children in His arms, put His hands on them and blessed them.”

The persistent crowds followed Jesus wherever  He went…pressing close and clamoring for attention.  But in this Scripture we see a completely different picture of the Lord.  He’s holding little ones on His lap…taking the time to hug and cuddle babies and toddlers…seemly unaware of the crowds around Him.  Jesus was practicing the gift of unhurried joy.  Of taking the time to show someone just how important they are with no regard to time, schedules, or deadlines.  Our greatest gift to someone we love, is unhurried time with them…calm, peaceful, focused time – not glancing at our watches or phones, but rather at them.  Who in your life today needs to receive the gift of your unhurried time?
