street children should not be despised, we need to embrace them with love and give them hope for the future, some people have a negative attitude towards these kids and this is what stigmatizes them.

dont despise street kids

Usually, human beings, we are so fast in pointing fingers of blame and accusations, usually the truth of life is assumed to be the rightness of behaviour which people judge to be the way they live as opposed to a different life that is seen among a different group people of people (in this case street children), the real life experience is hard to believe especially when you find that the society among which you are living do not approve your way of life. It takes a great measure of acceptance to accommodate others whose lives seem to be socially challenging.

What the minority groups are really going through is definitely contradicting to the expectations of what we would wish to see as a common way of life. What street children are is hard to really be easily believed. God is not a respecter of persons, He blesses any one just from where they are, as it was seen in the acts of Jesus in His mission on earth.

This was followed by a reading from the Bible, “…people were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, let the children come to me, and do not hinder them for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. I tell you the truth, anyone who will not receive the Kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it. And He took the children in His arms, put His hands on them and blessed them…” (Mark 10:11-16 ). we are urged as the members of the community to take time and think of what they are really think they need to do so as to enable the street children live life as any other human being created in the image and likeness of God.

We should take time to reflect and come to know that it can happen to anyone including our own children. We need to know from deep inside our hearts that the street children are our children only that they are from other families, these experiences that they go through can be faced by any child, and the best thing in life is not to condemn the children or to compare them with our own children whom we consider to be straight forward. The children who live in the streets are not necessarily from broken families, some of them are from very stable households with both parents alive and well stable financially.
