Life is so precious...

"When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these." - Mark 10:14

How precious are the children that we have the privilege of being with every day?  Jesus was annoyed at the fact that the children were not being allowed to come forward.  He was angry that the value of those children were not seen.  Wow! What is He thinking today?

Yesterday was the desinated Sunday to celebrate the sanctity of human life in many churches.  We, as many churches, talked about how precious life is, both young and aged.  However, I was reading an article by a pastor that was annoyed by the whole idea of this Sunday, which caught my attention.  How could a pastor be annoyed by something that celebrates the importance of life.  Come to find out, what annoyed him was the same thing that annoyed him about Christmas and Easter celebrations.  Why is it that it requires ONE special Sunday out of the year to focus on life?  Should we not demonstrate how special life is EVERY DAY of the year, just like we should celebrate the fact that Jesus came and died for our sins every day of the year.  Now I get it pastor...that is something on which we can agree.

Life is precious! Whether it is life inside of the womb or life that is aged...life is precious! Celebrate this precious gift each and every day.

In Christ,

Bro. Grant
