Making People a Priority

importance of children I want to reflect on three lessons, among many, that we learn from Luke 9:

So it should be with our personal ministry and with Compassion. By prioritizing children, we care for their needs and trust that God will multiply our resources as we strive to help release children from poverty in Jesus’ name.

When the apostles returned, they reported to Jesus what they had done. Then he took them with him and they withdrew by themselves to a town called Bethsaida, but the crowds learned about it and followed him. He welcomed them and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who needed healing. —Luke 9:10–11, NIV

Prayer: God, help us fulfill our ministry, so that children are a priority in our lives. Remind us that we are responsible for each one of their needs, and help us do everything with faith and gratitude in our hearts.
