There has been a lot in the news lately about various forms of child abuse. It ranges from abortion ….. to physical and mental abuse ….. to paedophila and sexual exploitation of minors. While the majority of us deem it unthinkable to harm a child ….. there are those among us with evil intent. Of course this is nothing new. Down through history ….. babies have been sacrificed to pagan gods. Satan sees each child as a potential threat and does everything he can to make that child ineffective. We must protect our young and vulnerable. Make sure they know who they are. That they are loved ….. that they are protected ….. and that they have a future and a hope. Most of all ….. they need to know they have a Heavenly Father who is with them 24/7. They are His precious gifts to us and we need to pray for them continually.
