I was thinking today about kids needing an advocate, a voice. So many don't have anyone to stand for them. Think how scary their lives are. They are at the mercy of society. Often the attention they get comes from the wrong place and wrong people.
The Greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven
At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.
— Matthew 18:1-5
