A father sits on the edge of his bed with his hands in his face weeping. In the background he can hear his wife sobbing in the next room. A week before his wife and he were a normal happy family of a beautiful 5 year old son till a tragic accident in a friends pool took the life of their little boy.
The father weeps. His mind is on little buddy. He recalls playing in the yard with him, wrestling in the living room, and seeing his big grin when he would bring a treat or gift home after work. The father goes into the next room and consoles his wife and tells her that all will be well as she buries her head in his shoulder.
The fathers mind is not on all the money he is going to save from not having to pay for college or having to buy a car for him. He doesn’t think about how much money he will save by not having to buy Christmas or birthday gifts. The thought of having to deal with hormones and attitudes as he grows doesn’t cross his mind either. All he is thinking about is his little boy and how he wished he had him back. That if he could, he would give his life for his own child.
This crossed my mind a few weeks back as I stood at the abortion facility here in Montgomery. Thousands of children are killed each year from abortion at this one facility and the number one reason is not rape or the health of the mom. It is the life of the mom. Nearly everyone that I have encountered that has come there has told me the reason for getting the abortion was simply, “It is just not a good time for me right now.” In other words, “My life is more important than the life of my baby.”
To some I know this sounds harsh, but as a parent and thinking of my own mom, parents give their life for their kids, kids do not give their life for their parents.
I recall very vividly my mom who would eat after my sisters and I had eaten to make sure we all had enough. How she worked late into the night and how my sister and I would tag along and sit in a booth coloring at the restaurant she managed. My mom showed me that parents give their life for their kids. She could have given us up, but persevered with a little help and raised us well the best she knew how.
This is what parents do. They do life on life with their kids. They mend wounds and heal hearts. Again, what we do not do is kill our kids, we give our life for them.
I would say to anyone considering abortion. Do you believe John 3:16?
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
If you do, then believe all that God says.
“Behold, children are a gift of the LORD, The fruit of the womb is a reward. Psalm 127:3
“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” Psalm 139:13,14
“Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them.” Psalm 139:16
“In whose hand is the life of every living thing, And the breath of all mankind?” Job 12:10
Believe all I said above and then believe…
There are six things which the LORD hates, Yes, seven which are an abomination to Him: Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, And hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that run rapidly to evil. Proverbs 6:16-18
“‘Cursed be anyone who takes a bribe to shed innocent blood.’ And all the people shall say, ‘Amen.’ Deuteronomy 27:25
“I call heaven and earth to witness against you today, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and curse. Therefore choose life, that you and your offspring may live” Deuteronomy 30:19
“You shall not murder” Exodus 20:13
Believe and trust in Christ to save you from your sins.
“For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” John 3:16
