Weekly Reflection

ChildAid helped them smile.


Each week we post a scripture or a quotation we have come across during the week, or a simple prayer that one of the ChildAid team have reflected upon or that has spoken to us in some way. It may be specific to the needs of our partners or the children, or indeed a request from any of our supporters.

You may wish to use our thoughts or reflections in your prayers for the forgotten children of Eastern Europe. 

Lewis Carroll in Alice in wonderland wrote:

       Alice: Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?
The Cheshire Cat: That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.
       Alice: I don't much care where.
The Cheshire Cat: Then it doesn't much matter which way you go.
       Alice: ...So long as I get somewhere.
The Cheshire Cat: Oh, you're sure to do that, if only you walk long enough

I’m not sure I agree with Alice who doesn’t seem to mind where she goes, but I agree with the sentiments of the Cheshire Cat - we need vision, a goal, and the desire to move forward. Poverty I am told is not so much the state of being poor, but one of disempowerment; I believe encouragement is a major step towards empowerment. Have you encouraged someone today?
