     Children are important to God.  In fact, one of the instances in the Bible where Jesus displayed his indignation was when the disciples rebuked the parents for bringing their children to Him in Mark 10:13-16.

Mark 10:14 - "When Jesus saw this, he was INDIGNANT."

Indignant - furious, angry, displeased
      The other one was when Jesus entered the temple area and drove out all who were buying and selling there in Matthew 21:12-13.

Matthew 21:12b-13: He overturned the tables of the money changers and the benches of those selling doves. It is written, he said to them, "My house will be called a house of prayer, but you are making it a den of robbers.".

      But to our dismay, millions of children all over the world (an estimated of 3.5 million) are being enslaved, abused and trafficked. I believe that if we, who are imperfect, are grieved a thousand times by the abuse and enslavement of this innocent children, how much more the one who is perfect, our Father in heaven?

      Children need our prayers. They need our help. In unity, we can make a difference.
