Then the Lord God formed the man out of the dust from the ground and breathed the breath of life into his nostrils, and the man became a living being. Genesis 2:7 HCSB
In 2011, 730,322 legally induced abortions were reported to the Center for Disease Control from 49 reporting areas in the United States. The abortion rate was 13.9 abortions per 1,000 women aged 15–44 years and the abortion ratio was 219 abortions per 1,000 live births. Many believe it is a woman’s choice to end the life of an unborn baby. There are bumper stickers that refute that thought by saying, “It is not a choice, it is a life.” Life begins at conception and should be valued.
God is the giver of all life. God breathed life into man and created man and woman so they might multiply and fill the earth. Many boast of personal achievements and abilities, but we can do nothing without a life given by God and the unique abilities and talents He designs for each of us. We are nothing without God.
Challenge: Thank God for your life and the abilities and talents He has given you. How can you best use your skills to serve Him? Value life and take a stand against abortion.
