Children Know More Than You Think…

...pay attention.

A generation ago, kids were meant to be quiet and in their place. In many ways, that meant being invisible. That didn’t work out so well and so we’ve had an improving generation where we’ve begun to value the needs and roles of children. That’s not everywhere or with every adult, but the situation has improved over the years. Listen to the voice of the Shepherd over 2,000 years ago:

Matthew 21:14-16 (NIV)
14  The blind and the lame came to him at the temple, and he healed them.
15  But when the chief priests and the teachers of the law saw the wonderful things he did and the children shouting in the temple area, “Hosanna to the Son of David,” they were indignant.
16  “Do you hear what these children are saying?” they asked him. “Yes,” replied Jesus, “have you never read, “‘From the lips of children and infants you have ordained praise’?”
Kids have a place in the Kingdom of God. He knows them each and loves them dearly. So should we. Unborn children count too. God help us.
