10 “See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven. Matthew 18:10-11
Jesus returned to the subject of the children who were still in His presence. He had a special place in His heart for children, widows, and foreigners – all vulnerable and neglected groups in a society.
At least two of those three groups have garnered quite a bit of attention lately because of mass arrest of those who trafficked children and foreigners, sometimes they were on in the same: foreign children. It is an evil in this world that Christians should be on the front line fighting again. The loss of innocence through sexual exploitation of minors is evil and should be confronted. Jeffrey Epstein’s list of the rich and famous who visited private island is about to be exposed. Watch carefully the rich and powerful who oppose that action.
Unfortunately, Epstein is a mere tip of the iceberg as it relates to the trafficking of children, young men, and young women in this world. One of the most outspoken men regarding this issue made a startling comment: “human trafficking exists in every zip code in America.”
So, while we’d like to think that it can never happen in our town, it is already here.
It’s quite easy to think it will go away too, but it won’t without people like you and me getting involved. Fortunately the subject is getting some of the attention it deserves, but it needs more.
Take some time this week to read up on this worldwide and local problem. Chances are good someone in your town has begun organizing to help in this fight.
Seriously pray about what you (and I) should do, if anything, in this war on our children and young men and women.
