Lectionary: 460, 650
“See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father.”
One more thing: To remember that my children are first children of God is a sobering thought. I will have to answer to their heavenly Father for my behavior toward them. Am I always loving, kind with my words, slow to anger? Is any mom always those things? The answer is no; but with the grace of God, and help from our own angels, we can make a renewed effort each day!
Prayer: Angel sent by God to guide me; be my light and walk beside me; be my guardian and protect me; on the paths of life direct me. Amen.
