Loving our Children


Today i was walking out of Target and i saw a dad and his little girl walking in.  She had a magical smile on her face.  She was dancing in some over-sized boots that you could tell she had just received.

She didn't have a care in the world as she marched into Target with her dad.  I think she was pretending to be some mythical person.  Definitely a happy kid.  The look she had on her face could only come from a child whose parents love her.

As i walked to my car, i couldn't help but crack a smile.  The joyful innocence of a child always brings a smile to my face.

As i got closer to my car.  I thought about our generation's children.  I thought to myself - "What kind of future am i handing  these kids?"

It doesn't take a genius or a prophet to see what's ahead for our children.

Love...

Doesn't love conquer all?  Do we really love our children?  If we love our children, shouldn't our actions indicate so?

If we love our children, shouldn't we fight for a better future for them?

I wonder what will become of this girl in thirty years.

Will she hear the gospel?

Will she live in an America where the wicked reign?

Will the name of Jesus be legal in her future?

If we love our children let's give them a better future.
