The little ones cry a lot. They’re ruled almost completely by their emotions. And most of the time they haven’t even figured out how to use their words yet to communicate what’s wrong. This is tied in to God and his grace.
It strikes me how much these little ones need us. But not just to give them food or a place to live. They need us on a much deeper level. They need to know they are valuable to us. And they need to feel that.
