In villages in Guatemala, every family member takes on responsibility. It is very common for teenagers to pay for the family electric bill or for weekly food if they have a job and very often the big sister cares for the younger sibling no matter how old either of them are. Lilian is only 11 years old but is already an expert in caring for her baby brother.
Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty? They are higher than the heavens above—what can you do? They are deeper than the depths below—what can you know? Their measure is longer than the earth and wider than the sea. Job 11:7-9
