The Vortex—Dying Flowers



The Vortex—Dying Flowers 

This reminds me of an interview Neil Cavato showed at the end of his Fox News program one day earlier this week.  It was between a young father and his little son in France, talking about the terrorist attack in Paris.  The little boy, about 4 years old, was trying to be brave but he was clearly terrified about what had happened.  He told the interviewer, "Now we have to find a new home."  The father quickly told him, "No we don't have to move. We'll be safe."  The boy answered, "But what about the bad men?"  They were standing before the street side man made memorial of flowers and candles in Paris.  The young father told his son, "Look at the flowers, the flowers will protect us."  The little boy, who trusted his father totally, asked in his innocence, "The flowers, they will protect us?"  His father nodded. The boy's worried face immediately relaxed and smiled.   It was a sweet scene, but I had to wonder...why did not the father be honest, why did he not tell his little son, "Don't worry, the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will protect us."  His boy would have believed him totally and he would have learned a great Truth that day which would have carried him through his whole life.  We need to get real.  We need to get honest.  ONLY Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will save and protect us.  The little children need to know that.  We ALL need to know that, and share it.
