Children and the Heart of Jesus
Jesus made it clear that children hold a special place in his heart. He said that the kingdom of heaven is of such as these. He also said that whoever causes one of these little ones to stumble, it would be better for him to have a millstone hung around his neck and be drowned in the depth of the sea.
Today we take a look at some facts that might shock you, seeing how far we have fallen and how our children are being exposed to things that, just a few years ago, most adults would never see or even imagine.

It Would Be Better for Him...
In the June 6th Worldview Matters radio show, Brannon Howse tells about his experience at his local Barnes and Noble bookstore. Open on a table was a very large, full-color, picture book displaying a man in full frontal nudity. The cover was two men kissing. This book was filled with full-color pictures of gay men doing what they do. And Mr. Howse's 11-year-old son saw it.
The assistant manager told Brannon that this was the second time that night this book had been laid open in the store. She also informed him that such books were regularly found in the men's room, and that a young boy had been sexually assaulted in the bathroom at this store and the man was never caught. This book was not dragged out of hiding, but off its normal location — the top shelf of a bookcase that any 13 year old could reach.
In light of what he says in his Word, how does God view this? And what should our response be?
Because this is not just an isolated incident, but a very chilling and vivid example of what is happening to society and how it affects our children for the rest of their lives, our service today is a bit different. We play a number of clips from the program, pondering how God sees this assault on his little ones, and what our response should be.
