The Christmas Story 19

Matthew 2:16 Part I

slew all the male children…

 

This day in many churches is commemorated as the day of “Holy Innocents”. The day the children in Bethlehem died at the hands of a vengeful, spiteful, pitiless ruler. The day also reminds us of those children that have suffered throughout history at the hands of uncaring adults. Children who are caught in the cross fires of wars, children caught in the hands of oppression, bigotry, and poverty, children, innocent children, who suffer the consequences of man’s greed, hatred, and selfishness. These Bethlehem children are the same as those that suffer in Africa, in our own city ghettos, and our abortion clinics nationwide
