Psalm 91:11 English Standard Version (ESV)
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways.
Matthew 18:10 English Standard Version (ESV)
10 “See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.[a]
Psalm 34:7 English Standard Version (ESV)
7 The angel of the Lord encamps
around those who fear him, and delivers them.
When I look at these images that could have been from my childhood, I wonder how we survived. We sure kept our guardian angels on their toes! How much retraining has had to be done for the angels watching over today's children facing dangers we had never foreseen? Tonight's news has been so full of gun violence that I think it must take all the courage parents can muster to let their children out the door. As much as I would like to wrap our little ones in cotton and steel, I know I still can't guarantee their safety; but the God who knows and understands these fears is well able to watch over our little ones. That there are baby boomers now growing into old age is a testament to that truth.
