Give Them Love!
Date: 19 Sep 2014

Then they brought little children to Him, that He might touch them; but the disciples rebuked those who brought them.
Mark 10:13

This week I had the opportunity to visit a children’s home, also called a children’s place of safety. Many people will never know of the problems some of these kids face – abuse, neglect, abandonment and more! They are too young to understand their situation. But in my case, their need to be loved hit home with a vengeance when a little boy of four simply walked up to where I was sitting, got onto my lap without saying a word, and just sat there. All he wanted was to feel love and affection. His sister was checking out the situation, and soon, she too, was sitting on my lap. No one said a word. They just soaked up the affection and the time I was prepared to give them.
There are people out there, especially children, that may never really know what it is to be loved. Indeed, they may even grow up ending their lives in prison. What a shame! We as Christians should take the initiative to visit children’s homes, make arrangements with the people in charge to just spend some time with the children there and love them by giving them a little of your time. If you are retired, you have no excuse. Make the time! Let the love that the Lord Jesus had for little children shine through in you. It is probably the greatest feeling of satisfaction that there can be – to see the joy on the face of a child, once unloved, now loved.

Prayer: Lord, give me the ability to make time to spend with a dear little soul that has been neglected and has gone unloved.
Amen
