Our view of Children

There is a quote, the context of which I haven't been able to establish, but that I think sums up nicely how the world and even some in the church view abortion. It is from Frederica Mathewes-Green and says, "No woman wants an abortion as she wants an ice cream cone or a Porsche. She wants an abortion as an animal caught in a trap wants to gnaw off its own leg." Children are a trap and women who want to have abortions are just trying to free themselves from it.

God says in Psalm 127, "Lo, children are an heritage of the LORD: and the fruit of the womb is his reward. As arrows are in the hand of a mighty man; so are children of the youth. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate."

Should we argue with the One who made us all? Aborted and not aborted alike?

Amein, Stephanie! It saddens me the worldly view of children (born and unborn) as a burden, as a chore, a job that lasts 18 years and then from which you are free. It is so not the case--they are such a blessing. Like most lessons from the Most High, it is not easy or stress-free being a mother, but oh so worth it!

This is true. It is a horrific act, termed as a 'procedure', which shocks me to my core. The women who have abortions are sadly deceived and robbed, and 'know what they do'.

I am so glad for His forgiveness and mercy to such a sinner as I. I was once deceived, then He brought Truth into my life.

I can't believe I stumbled upon this post tonight.

Amen, and bless you!
