Know therefore that the Lord your God is God, the faithful God who maintains covenant loyalty with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations,
~ Deuteronomy 7:9
We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.
~ Stacia Tauscher
I cannot shake the feeling that I am God’s child. Every time the pastor calls for the children to come forward I have to physically stop myself because somewhere in my inner self, that is the first “person” to respond to his words.
We had a centenarian in our church who had been in the ministry for 75 of his one hundred years. Whenever he saw a child, he sat or got to their eye level, and the years would visibly disappear from his face, leaving a youthful smile and a memory that clearly demonstrated he had not forgotten.
Today, when you look at that one who vexes you so, look for the child of God. Lift them in your prayers, every time you think of them.
Because of Him,
I am your child – Barry Manilow
