Children are a gift from the Lord...
(Psalm 127:3)
Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world.  Red and yellow, black and white they are precious in His sight.  Jesus loves the little children of the world!

Remember that little tune?  I do.  Hearing it used to instantly bring a smile to my face, but lately the smile doesn't last very long!   For several weeks now my heart has been aching around the devastating news of abuse and deaths of these precious little ones!

Hardly a week goes by that there's not a news account of a missing or mistreated child somewhere in my community!  So much so that if one is not careful you could almost become desensitized to it.  I pray that this never happens for who then will speak for these little ones whose voices have been snuffed out in violence!

 Precious? Is this how the world sees these babies?  Ask the father of three month old Baby Janna who died (supposedly of natural causes) but was placed in a dumpster because her father panicked and never thought to cal 911!

How about Baby Zoey's parents.  They flat out murdered this one year old child.  Examination  of her remains showed that she had been beaten, bitten, and broken repeatedly over her short life span.  What in the name of all that is holy could a child do to deserve that?

 I still can't forget back in August 2014, Baby Delano's  father and mother stirring up emotions and creating so much  publicity while claiming he had been kidnapped at gun point when all alone he was murdered and his body disposed of.  Like Baby Janna, we still don't know where he is hidden! Some desolate field, under a bridge, decomposing in a weed filled vacant lot?

My local newspaper ran a series on babies born with drug addiction.  It recounted the callousness/carelessness of mothers who continued drug use while pregnant, even shooting up just before coming into deliver their babies.  The result was babies only a few hours old shaking and writhing in excruciating pain from withdrawals!  Where is the respect for these little human lives?  Are they looked at as dispensable,  irrelevant or perhaps just incidentals to fleshly pleasure?

Jesus didn't think so!  In the Gospels when the disciples tried to shoo the children away who wanted to see and be near Jesus, He said, "Suffer the little children to come unto me, for such is the kingdom of heaven" (Matthew 19:4)  Babies and children are important to Him.  They were treated as assets not liabilities and they were given honor and why can't we!

A thought came to my mind a few days ago.  Can you imagine a world without children?  Sounds bizarre doesn't it?  But is it that far-fetched?  With the rise in abortions, delayed child bearing causing infertility among the career oriented; the murders of our babies and increasing violence against black males are we that far removed from this reality?

This Holocaust of our children is no mere societal flaw!  It is a well thought out and strategic plan of the Enemy who wants to snuff out our future, preachers, teachers, missionaries, Christian politicians, economists and world leaders.

Read the following excerpt from a poem by Brian Molitor, The Endless Days of War.  Then tell me is this a war worth fighting!

Our children they are suffering; they bleed outside and in
Wounded by incessant war, they need more than just a friend
If only there was someone; brave and strong and sure
That would enlist to fight for them, a hero to the core
Now, do not be mistaken; this no easy chore
But every man is needed in these endless days of war
Our weapons are not carnal; we need not knives or guns
We fight with prayer and words of hope for our daughters and our sons
Surrender’s not an option; no white flag will be raised
This war requires each man’s best for our children to be saved
Men, when the fight is over and our tour of duty done
On bended knee, before our King, we’ll hear the words…”Well done.”
