Seven year old "Polo" was placed in our children's home about a week ago. He was scared and malnourished. He didn't understand why everything he'd ever known was so suddenly changing. He was crying for his dad and trying to get to him, but his dad had died 15 days earlier. I felt like my heart had been ripped out of my chest. What did this little boy do to deserve this? Why him?
But then I remembered Psalms 140:12, "I know that the LORD secures justice for the poor and upholds the cause of the needy." My God is greater than all of Polo's suffering and pain, and my God brings justice. While Polo may lack a physical father, he has a spiritual Father that loves him, and has a plan for him. A Father that only wants the best for his child.
Luke 6:20-21. "Blessed are you who are poor, for yours in the kingdom of God. Blessed are you who hunger now, for you shall be satisfied. Blessed are you who weep now, for you shall laugh."
