How Did You Know?

“For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well.  My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.”  (Psalm 139:13–16, NIV). 

My Musings – As is so often the case, my Sunday “amusings” take on a serious tone, as I think about all the unborn babies who have been killed by abortion. How many were ordained to become future statesmen or women?  How many were written in His book to be great teachers?  Would one of them find the cure for cancer? Or simply to grow up, get married, have their own children and enrich the lives of those who loved them?  But were denied this right because another’s “right” to choose was given priority.  Before any of their days could come to be, the one who should have loved them the most (after God), loved them the least.

I know I am taking the following text completely out of context, but I sometimes wonder if a similar scene is being played out before Almighty God by the millions of babies who have been aborted. “I saw under the altar the souls of [all the babies] who had been slain… They called out in a loud voice, ‘How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?’”  (Revelation 6:9–10, NIV 1984). 

My Advice“See that you do not look down on one of these little ones. For I tell you that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father in heaven.”  (Mt 18:10, NIV 1984). Overturning Roe v. Wade is a noble cause, but it will not be the end of the battle.  We must work to reach the hearts and souls of the ones who look to the “right” to choose as a solution to their “problem. ” While we need not abandon the noble cause, we should also pursue the nobler cause.  We can be instrumental in saving two souls.
