Precious innocence

Afghan children wait to receive basic medical care and clothing on Camp Clark, Khowst province, Afghanistan, Dec. 22. (Staff Sgt. Andrew Smith)

[Jesus said,] ““Let the children come to me; do not prevent them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” Mark 10:14

Children are infinitely precious, innocent, and fragile. To mentor and care for children so that they maintain healthy self-esteem and develop compassion and a sense of personal responsibility is the most difficult—and rewarding—work an adult could have.

Today I will remember that children are a gift to cherish and protect. I will let the children in my life teach me to be aware of the joy of unconditional love. I will find opportunities to help children in need.

Sow peace

And the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace for those who cultivate peace. James 3:18

When I am at peace with myself, I am able to be of gentle, consistent, compassionate service to others.

Today I will let go of ambition and envy. I will take five minutes of quiet time to feel the peace of God in my heart. I will receive all people in the name of Love.
