Children Inspire Us to Cry
This little boy, Moses, recently received massive chest surgery. We visited his community where his mother was worried for his health and wanted us to pray for her son. At one point during our visit, he was upset and cried out. Immediately Moses was comforted by those who were close by, including the World Vision staff member that's holding him in this picture. Moses never felt like crying out was something to be ashamed of, and we can all learn from his example.
Crying can be so important and even healthy, yet many times we don’t let ourselves shed the tears we need to. It’s understandable when children who are scared or upset to cry out. We need to extend that gracious attitude to ourselves. Nothing will be resolved if we don’t talk about how we feel. Crying is healthy, and we should not feel ashamed to do it.
