SON SHINE 366: MORTGAGED
His father had many children and opted to reduce his burden by sending the boy to a relation to raise. The teenager was worse for it as his guardian?s apparent priority was his equally sizable family. The boy – now a farm hand, was an advertisement for parental abandonment and had little hope of ever going to school or realizing his potential.
?When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.? ? Psalms 27: 10 (KJV)
Every child deserves your love.
Let the Son shine in your heart daily.
