The Gift of Life
The timing for this month’s theme, “Natural Pregnancy Health” couldn’t have been more relevant. As I write, journalists — regardless of their political persuasion — are equally outraged at the Presidents decision to bypass the Constitution and usurp authority over the Catholic Church concerning birth control, contraceptives and surgery (a political term for abortion). I will try to uncover the heart of God in this post in lieu of my own emotions on this “hot button” topic.
You see, life is a gift — the greatest gift of all. You didn’t create your life. It was created for you.
“Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and man became a living being.” Genesis 2:7
Always remember, life never requires a right to exist… it IS existence personified.
Life does not depend upon man’s permission to begin anymore than it requires mans permission to end.
Can you imagine if the government started legislating gift giving? Would you be comfortable with that? China and some provinces in India are already legislating God’s greatest gift, children.
In China, each family is limited to two children. With that being said, the Chinese have been aborting females for years so they could have (2) males to carry on the family name. In poor provinces of India, they are doing the same thing, but for a different reason. Though they are relatively poor, their culture demands a very expensive dowry upon marriage.
Today, the result of both countries attempt at “playing God” has created dire consequences.
For the Chinese, the ratio of men to women is astounding, thus a diminished race, increased homosexuality and an obvious rise in violent crimes, especially rape. In India, the problem is on a much smaller level, but several orphanages have begun to take in girls to spare them from abortion.
