Don’t throw the baby-killers out with the bath water!

Gift: Understanding – With the gift of understanding, we comprehend how we need to live as a follower of Jesus Christ. A person with understanding is not confused by all the conflicting messages in our culture about the right way to live.

 

Reading:  For we ourselves were once foolish, disobedient, deluded, slaves to various desires and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful ourselves and hating one another.  (Titus 3:3)

 

Observation:  So, the title for my post today says it all.  I was recently moved to feel like it was necessary to point out to the world that Planned Parenthood is murdering a generation of our children in the wombs of un-knowing mothers.  However, today’s reading reminds me that I should be more willing to pray for their souls than condemn them for their actions.  Truth is, I have been a part of the attitude in society that says that babies are an inconvenience for most of my life, so if God can convert me, why not them?

 

Personification:  Kindness. You may ask how calling abortionists and their supporters, like Planned Parenthood, baby-killers is displaying the fruit of kindness.  However, I don’t think many abortion supporters are reading my blog at this point, or will they ever, so I think I am safe to say that the title will serve its’ purpose by bringing more people, like me, to a spot where we are praying for them, and not condemning them.

 

Prayer:  Lord, please show your loving kindness to me and all those who believe that legal abortion could ever be seen as a good thing.  My hope is that by my display of the fruit kindness to all people, that you will be able to convert our hearts to follow your commands more closely.  I ask this, as always, in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit…Amen!

    • Unfortunately, they provide abortion as an option that is being paid for by people that disagree with it being an option…I pray for our repentance or change of heart on this issue, and I pray especially for all those that are asked to advise people that they should use abortion to prevent the birth of their children…We can’t wait for the law to change, because there are too many lives at stake before that happens…Amen!
