I have a guest post over at Red Letter Believers today. My last piece over there was about the lessons I learned from my first job. This one is similar because it is about another woman and her first job. In it, I talk about Rahab; but I only use that biblical example to point out America’s undercurrent of child sex-slavery.
Oh, quit looking the other way and get back here. It’s a tough topic, I know. It scares me, grosses me out, and breaks my heart into a million pieces. And ya wanna know something? I hope it does the very same for you.
Within forty-eight hours of hitting the streets, one in three kiddos (as young as 5-years old) is forced into prostitution. For the most part, they (and oftentimes their mammas) are not initially strong-armed into a sex-slavery situation, rather they are first told lies about provision and comfort and safety by the devil’s very own workers who walk around as smooth-talking pimps.
Go on and read it. And then share it with someone. Share it with anyone. Share it with everyone you.
because it could be the story of someone in your family, your town, or your neighborhood…
