“It’s A Matter of Life…”
Written by “Anonymous One”
Increasingly in our culture, children are not viewed as the unique gifts from God that they truly are. They are too often seen as untimely, inconvenient interruptions to the lives and plans of their parents. It is all too familiar that we hear that family circumstances preclude the birth of a baby.
The Truth is, every child is created special, with awesome purpose and amazing potential. Children are the most precious and promising ingredient in our mixed up world.
Consider this: If you knew a woman who was pregnant, who had eight kids already, three of whom were deaf, two who were blind, one mentally retarded, and the woman had syphilis, would you recommend that she have an abortion? If the overwhelming magnitude of ill circumstances had led in this case to following the recommendation for abortion, consider that Beethoven would not have drawn his first breath.
We would do well to remember some good advice to be found in Isaiah.
“My ways are not your ways, my thoughts are not your thoughts … for as the heavens are higher than the earth, my ways are higher than yours!”
Isaiah 55:8-9 New King James Version (NKJV)
8 “For My thoughts are not your thoughts,
Nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord.
9 “For as the heavens are higher than the earth,
So are My ways higher than your ways,
And My thoughts than your thoughts.
