KCAT CAN: God bless the child

"Let’s commit our children and their plans to God—knowing that He’s the only One who can help them truly succeed." (Proverbs 16:3)

I love children! I love playing and talking with them. One of my favorite things to do is to observe kids while playing, running around, or simply doing nothing at all. They can make someone happy even without putting much effort. They are naturally adorable in their own ways.

I was having a conversation with one of my friends and we talked about how the kids of today are far different from what we were during our generation. We did not have play stations, cell phones, computers, internet services, cable TVs, iPods, and other game consoles then, but childhood days were fun and enjoyable, nonetheless. We enjoyed playing a lot of street games with our friends, like patintero, tumbang preso, syatong, langit-lupa, piko, Chinese garter, etc. We enjoyed writing letters, doodling, and passing our slum books around. There were times when I thought to myself, “If only there had been Facebook and Internet before….” But then again, I would tell myself, “Good thing they were not invented yet, for I might not have had those beautiful childhood memories to cherish right now.”

One sad thing though is that there are a lot of kids these days who are staying in the hospitals, instead of on the playground.

"Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” (Luke 6:38)

It is really a blessing to be able to share because that means you have something to give.
