Worth More Than a Sparrow

take actionBeing free consists more of just our freedom from a tyrannical government. With the importance of maintaining our freedom so many have fought and lost their lives over, the fight is still on for many others who are still in slavery. Our continued denial of the value of human life has led us on an unprecedented path in our lifetime. Over 45 million people worldwide, 2 million being children, are held in slavery.

Honestly, this is a hard topic for me to discuss. My stomach turns and I begin to feel sick as I think about the innocent women and children being held hostage and forced to do unimaginable things. The abuse, pain, and suffering they must go through all because of the selfishness of man. My heart aches for them in the middle of the night as God urges me to pray. God comforts my heart in reminding me that He sees what is going on and justice will be brought to the light in His timing.

Lk12.2

“There is nothing covered that won’t be uncovered, nothing hidden that won’t be made known. Therefore, whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in an ear in private rooms will be proclaimed on the housetops. And I say to you, My friends, don’t fear those who kill the body, and after that can do nothing more. But I will show you the One to fear: Fear Him who has authority to throw people into hell after death. Yes, I say to you, this is the One to fear! Aren’t five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten in God’s sight. Indeed, the hairs of your head are all counted. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows!” Luke 12:2-7

stop-human-traffickingI am not an expert on the topic, but that does not mean I can ignore what is happening. I am called to pray and be informed so that God can use me as He desires to help share with people the value they have in Christ. To help bring them to freedom. Below you will find just a few of the resources available to help us pray more intently while equipping and informing us for this battle against the enemy who desires to enslave and devalue the life God has created.

Pray and Get Informed!
