My Child Is Worth More Than Yours

What price would you put on a child? What price would you put on YOUR children? How about those of Sandy Hook Elementary? What about children in other countries, are they worth less than us?

It appears they are, according to the viewpoint of some. How can we justify the killing of hundreds of thousands of children in war? Take a view of this 0:23 second clip and let me know your opinions of then US Secretary of State Madeline Albright. Look into her face and eyes, where is the love in them? If you read the description of the video, you will see General Richardson say the same thing. That the policy allowing 500,000 innocent children to die was the right thing. Why does the policy that allows 20 children at Sandy Hook to die need to be changed, while the policy that kills half a million doesn't?

I'm sad to say the answer is because our children our more valuable than other people's children around the world.

But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

Ben- Sadly, there is even what is called a "Life Lottery." Its a ranking of all of the countries in the world, listing where you have the best odds at a good life (Where-to-be-born Index). As a daughter of US dad and a Uruguayan mom, I had a 50% chance of growing up in a 3rd world country, where sadly, my value would have been considered "negligible." This is yet another reason why the Gospel is SO important. Everyone needs to know their life is as valuable as their brothers'. And shame on anyone for not treating all of God's children as the precious souls they are. We live in sad and perilous times.

Rebekah, you are so awesome that even if you were born in Uruguay you would've proved your worth! And isn't the gospel great, we are all born with the same ETERNAL potential. Great comment, thanks for sharing.
