Babies are a joy; God’s gift to the world. Yet, so many today are abused, abandoned, and tossed away like trash. In the midst of selfishness, poverty and greed, a baby’s cry goes unheard; a child’s anguish unseen.
As the value of human life goes down the price of a child’s innocent body goes up through child exploitation and human trafficking.
And it’s all around us.
Although we can’t rescue every hurting child in the world, we can love and protect the ones God has put in our lives. Our children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren need love and encouragement. They need our time and attention. They need to know that when they mess up we still love them and will always be there for them.
We need to treat the children in our lives as if they are the most precious treasures on earth . . . because they are!
