Questions for Reflection

  • What is the relationship between Psalm 23 (The Lord is my shepherd….your rod and your staff they comfort me) and Proverbs 13:24 (“Those who spare the rod hate their children, but those who love them are diligent to discipline”)?

  • Why was Jesus taking the little children up into his arms and blessing them a radical act? Why is caring for children in our community part of our call as Christians?

  • Take some time to reflect on this time in our culture from a child’s perspective. If you were a child today, from what stresses might you need refuge and comfort? Is there a way you might (or already do) contribute to the well-being of children in our faith community and beyond?
