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?
