Re: Verse reading–Psalm 127:3-5; Proverbs 22:6; Deuteronomy 6:1-9 (day three)

“Children are a heritage from the Lord.”  Pop culture tries very hard to make childhood disappear.  Movies often portray children as people who have the most wisdom of all the characters in the story.  Child celebrities often get celebrated and congratulated when they finally leave behind all the “kid stuff” and present themselves as sexually savvy.  We want people to be smart, cool, sexual rocket scientists who rule the world.  Who has time for children who actually act like children: innocent, vulnerable, and trusting, but also selfish, grumpy, and undisciplined?  If the world has no room for children, the world will eventually have no room for you, because caring for children is what makes people able to care for each other.  How are you caring for children?
