Loving The Least
An active love is loving the “least of these.” Jesus taught us that anyone who is in need and has no power are the “least of these.” These are people who are overlooked and this group especially includes children. Children are a vulnerable population and we are called to be extraordinary, to go out of our way, to pour the compassion of Christ into the lives of children. God is as our Father is an example of the words found in Ephesians 6:4 where fathers are instructed to nurture and nourish their children, not wound them or be angry with them. Children are to be raised up to allow them to reach their God-given potential.
