My “Take me home Tuesday” is a bit different today.

I read an article through the BBC yesterday.

It touched me.

It broke my heart.

There are young children in Uganda being kidnapped by local witch doctors for the purpose of child sacrifice.

This is not just some barbaric ancient “custom”.  It is happening right now. In 2011.

Because, evil is real and it walks among us.

The body parts and blood of children are thought to bring prosperity…..and to some, human life always has a price.

God has something to say about those that would harm a child.

“But if anyone causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him to have a large millstone hung around his neck and to be drowned in the depths of the sea.”   Matthew 18: 6,  Mark 9:42,   Luke 17:2

This world we live in is broken, one doesn’t have to look very far to realize that.

“But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.”    Romans 5:8  NIV

Christ took our place.

He shed His own blood for our souls.

Because HE believes human life is valuable,

each one of us is…….

priceless.
