Love All the Children

A Love note from God, to all pregnant women (and parents who have accepted the greatest gift imaginable). As you’re sitting there contemplating the life that’s within you please realize that God, creator of all that exist, has plans for your child as he’s being formed within the womb. What an amazing thought. That this child of yours could be used of God in some mighty task in saving others or establishing His Kingdom here on earth. This child of yours could end up being the President of the United States of America; or some great scientist who discovers the cure for some horrible disease like Alzheimer’s; or some great evangelist that would turn the peoples heart back to God and His magnificent love.

Most will agree that there are levels of desperation where some on a lower level are led to lie, manipulate, bear false witness, and intimidate others to get their needed resources.  As the desperation level increases others are led into a life of dishonesty, shoplifting, and even armed robbery to provide for their needs and the needs of their family. While working a night shift at a hotel during my Seminary days I have vivid memories of being robbed at gun point by a very desperate young man. Upon questioning his motive and seeking to change the outcome I was informed that his family was starving and he felt that he had no other options. Although I was unsuccessful in changing his mind, to this day I believe God gave me the courage to witness His love to a hurting and confused person in the midst of a very dangerous situation.
