“Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him” (Psalms 127:3).
Here in the United States and even around the world, children are not valued as they should be. These precious gifts from God are violated through such means of abortion, abuse, and child prostitution. When we talk about speaking up for those who cannot speak for themselves, children are part of that group who have been silenced and too often forgotten.
“Then he said to them, “Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For it is the one who is least among you all who is the greatest” (Luke 9:48).
While the littlest among us are considered the least in the eyes of the world, they are certainly not the least in the eyes and kingdom of God. What’s more is that God is not the only one to value and love little children. Throughout history, many prominent voices have spoken up on behalf of the littlest in our world. Today, let us search the Scriptures and beyond to renew our commitment to love and care for children.
Do you have a favorite Scripture or famous quote about children and their value, importance, and worth? Do you have an inspiring story or experience to share that connects compassion and children together? Please share your thoughts in the comments, and be sure to join us tomorrow as we discuss showing compassion in our local community.
