"'Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.' And He took them up in His arms, laid His hands on them, and blessed them."
"He [the Sovereign LORD] tends his flock like a shepherd:
He gathers the lambs in his arms
and carries them close to his heart..."
"Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience."
