“And who so shall receiue one such little child in my name, receiueth me.”
1611 King James Version (KJV)
18:5-6 And all who are in this sense little children are unspeakably dear to me. Therefore help them all you can, as if it were myself in person, and see that ye offend them not; that is, that ye turn them not out of the right way, neither hinder them in it. #Matt 10:40|; Luke 10:16; John 13:20. #Mark 9:42|; Luke 17:1.
Mt 18:5 Whoso shall receive one such little child in my name. "Receiving in my name" is serving with Christian love, and as belonging to Christ. Receiveth me. Observe that the true way to receive Christ is to receive into our heart, for Christ's sake, those who need our sympathies.
