“See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father. What is your opinion? If a man has a hundred sheep and one of them goes astray, will he not leave the ninety-nine in the hills and go in search of the stray? And if he finds it, amen, I say to you, he rejoices more over it than over the ninety-nine that did not stray. In just the same way, it is not the will of your heavenly Father that one of these little ones be lost.”
Instead of receiving little children in His name, our culture is rejecting them, in a callous and cruel way. Abortion is destroying our country, our future generations and our culture. How will we be able to look at God and these little angels knowing what we have done? If we do nothing, we are agreeing to what is happening. What have you done to stop the slaughter of our children?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, forgive us for the crimes against your children. Help us to see your love, grace and mercy and turn from our sin. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
How sweet to my taste is your promise!
