Over the past week, I have been fortunate to have had several opportunities to travel. As I have been waiting to board the planes and then while on the plane, there have been children traveling as well. Reactions from travelers seem to vary, ranging from engaging the children in conversation to rolling their eyes as children board the plane.
Throughout our lives, we experience people with different reactions to children. While some may push children away, others will embrace them and bring them close. We are children in God's Kingdom and He welcomes us. In turn, we should welcome the children that pass through our lives. We should talk to them and look out for their well-being. Instead of rolling our eyes, we can give a kind smile that lets each child know they are part of God's loving family!
React to children by welcoming them and showing God's love!
Thank You for welcoming me as one of Your children. Help me to show Your love to all. Through Jesus I pray, amen.
