Children are not forsaken. Let’s look at the short story of Bimpe and Mabel, the leader of the popular girls at the tutorial center.
‘Don’t sit there!’ a harsh voice said behind Bimpe as she was about to sit on the chair. It was Mabel, a year older than her and the leader of the popular girls at the tutorial center.
‘Why?’ Bimpe asked, masking the feeling of rejection inside her with a pleasant smile, as she turned towards the approaching Mabel.
‘Because you’re not in our group’ Mabel replied, swiping Bimpe from head to toes with her eyes. Her little entourage at her heels did the same to Bimpe, giving cruel smiles and chuckles as they passed her and took the row of seats.
Bimpe managed to find a seat somewhere but held her head high as she did so.
‘Though my father and mother forsake me, the Lord will receive me’.
Rejection is hard on children because it screams out to them you are not wanted, needed, beautiful, important, or worthy of love.
God doesn’t love us because of who we are, what we have, where we live, our parents, or for any other reason. He loves us just the way we are.
The bible says He first loved us. He loves us so much he made the earth for us, gave us air to breathe, the sun to shine and so much more the earth contains.
And He will never reject us. He promised to always love us. Even if others reject us, he won’t.
Thank you Lord for Your unconditional love for me. I am glad that I have your love. Amen

God loves me. Even if the world rejects me for any reason, God will never do so.
