An important acronym in my life is BIBLE which is translated Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth and when you break down God’s word, it’s exactly that. Anything and everything that we need help with, it’s inside God’s word. We do not have to be afraid of opening it up or calling out upon our Father’s name and while there are many people upset about what scripture says to us, God’s word is clear if only we will abide by it and one message that He is clear about is to Protect The Children.
Scripture tells us in Psalms 127:3 “Lo, children [are] an heritage of the LORD: [and] the fruit of the womb [is his] reward.” These children—our children—are an inheritance from God and just like any inheritance, we are to do our best to cherish and take care of it. Unfortunately, too many people have forgotten about this and do their best to do away with their responsibility and we see this daily within many homes where the parents are too busy doing whatever they desire and neglecting to raise up their children.
God does not look highly on people who forget to teach their children right from wrong and let them know that they are loved and yes, I realize that there is no such thing as a perfect parent but nowhere does Christ tell us to be perfect but to do our best and let Him do the rest. This is what is needed most in the troubling and trying times in which we live but too many people have not lived up to their responsibilities and neglected what scripture says is our accountability: “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6).
On Friday, the House of Representatives passed a stimulus bill that puts money into the pockets of nearly 90 percent of all Americans (per reports) and President Trump signed and while this is good, it took long hours and many days of bickering back and forth to agree on it and why? One of the hold ups was many representatives wanted a lot of funding for the organization Planned Parenthood which, among other things, aborts children. In other words, this organization helps parents to do away with their children and while this country is in the middle of a Pandemic, many representatives are worried about killing children.
For anyone who cares about what God says and tries to live by His word, it is clear that putting your own self interests above the needs of people in a troubling situation and the life of a child is not what God called us to do. Christ wants us to take care of each child and protect them. He puts us in charge of them for a specific reason and, again, He does not expect perfection but when we are advocating for the destruction of a human life then we are obstructing the Gospel of Jesus Christ and neglecting the call of all Saint to Protect God’s Children. An important reminder that we must take away from scripture is that what we do to His children—the least among us—we do unto Him: “And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done [it] unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done [it] unto me” (Matthew 25:40).
