Some of the things I worried about as a child seem insignificant now. Today children are faced with more serious issues than I ever dreamed of. The technological age has opened a whole new world for them and along with it, temptations and fears beyond belief.
Plans are in the works for sex education to be taught in kindergarten (without any real consequences being taught along with it.) Families are breaking apart in record numbers. Marriage doesn’t always hold the same reverence to the vows once taken. Parents are struggling to keep their jobs.
For quite a while our nation had become prosperous and people were spending lavishly on their children and now they must cut back. Disease still ravages our population and many kids have to go through life without a parent who has succumbed to death.
Somehow God always puts things into perspective for us. When our lives seem to be spiraling out of control, He is consistent. His laws never change. His guidance and correction in our lives never changes. His love and care for us absolutely never changes.
Thank you, dear Heavenly Father, for watching over the children of this world. Your Word tells about many instances which include them. Keep them in your tender care as they walk through life until they reach eternity with you. Amen!
