No citizen should be at rest when far too many children cannot be at ease. When it comes to the subject of human trafficking, we ought to be self-appointed traffic cops.
Last Sunday I showed a video from love146.org to the people of First Christian Church. When the video ended, quite a few people who were wiping tears from their eyes.
We learned that human trafficking generates about $32 billion annually. It is incredibly hard for me to think of that as a profit when the loss column is framed with the images of innocent children—children victimized for the pleasure and sexual gratification of others.
Two children are sold into the commercial sex trade every minute of every day. That is 525,600 a year X 2 children, which is over 1 million a year. Not just one year, but year after year.
By the way, how old are you? How many precious lives have been ruined in your lifetime?
Even though President Lincoln issued the Emancipation Proclamation on January 1, 1863, and the 13th Amendment declared slavery to be illegal, it continues today.
We need to pray for those who are preyed upon, and we need to support the efforts of those who are fighting the fight to free those who are still in bondage.
If you are interested in getting involved, let me know.
Think About It!
