Many: Jesus heals our wounds and soothes our tempers.

Scripture October 20, 2019
Matthew 19: 13-15 (NRSV)
Then little children were being brought to him in order that he might lay his hands on them and pray. The disciples spoke sternly to those who brought them; 14 but Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of heaven belongs.” 15 And he laid his hands on them and went on his way.
