Presiding Bishop Michael B. Curry writing in USA Today:
Bless the children: What Jesus would say about getting a COVID-19 vaccination
Protecting and safeguarding the wellbeing of children is at the core of what it is to be human and humane.
Jesus was furious when he saw the needs of children being pushed aside and ignored. For him, the way of unselfish, sacrificial love that seeks the good and wellbeing of others is at the heart of God’s law for human life and society. ….
Jesus then commanded his followers to let the children come to him. The old King James Version of the Bible translates his words this way: “Suffer the little children to come unto me and forbid them not: for of such is the kingdom of God.” (Mark 10:14) …
We who can receive the COVID-19 vaccine are being asked not just to protect ourselves, but also to protect children.
So even if you don’t want to get the vaccine for yourself, do it for the children.
Maybe one day, when they have grown up, they will be able to look back, and like my father, smile and thank God that we got the vaccine in our day.
