Jesus did not commission little children.
Au contrare, dear one (again, peace to you!). MANY were called and chosen as children. After his presence in the flesh, and certainly before (i.e., Moses, Samuel, David, Josiah, Daniel, Hanaiah, Azariah, Mishael, Jeremiah... heck, John the Baptist was still in his mother's womb)...
His core followers were adult men and women.
Now, just how would you know that? Because none seemed to have been mentioned by name?
"Then people brought little children to [Jesus] for him to place his hands on them and pray for them. But the disciples rebuked them. [Jesus] said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” When he had placed his hands on them, he went on from there."
"[Jesus], knowing their thoughts, took a little child and had him stand beside him. Then he said to them, “Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me;"
"Children, obey your parents in the Lord..."
A whole lot of folks weren't mentioned by name, dear one. At one point he sent out 70. Do you know their names and ages? How about the 72? Do you know if their children went with them? Obviously, from the first verse above, there were some children who followed my Lord, to the extent their age would let them. They may not have literally travelled with him... or, they actually may have and were just not written about (especially considering how the Apostles/disciples apparently felt about children...).
Apparently, just, according to Jewish law.
That's a false teaching, actually... because the only one who had to keep the Law... was my Lord. Apparently, the disciples TRIED to control this, but failed. Just as they did as to women, Samaritans, and the nations in general.
I don't want a child like faith. God gave me a brain and other skills to use in his service.
Interesting. Because childlike faith is what Christ requires (and you profess to be a christian). But it isn't your brains and skills that are to BE childlike, dear one. It is your FAITH. Childlike FAITH... coupled with VERY "adult" brains... and skills.
Again, peace to you!
YOUR servant and a slave of Christ,
