Red and yellow, black and white...
A father of the fatherless and a judge for the widows, Is God in His holy habitation. - Psalms 68:5
If Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world, what judgment of His wrath must He be preparing in the face of the wholesale slaughter of our little ones? And what does it say about our love for Him that we claim to be His adopted sons, yet are unconcerned for these little ones He loves? Has He not told us He is a Father to the fatherless?
These little ones' blood flows day by day in your own city--just down the block from your church office and almost kitty-corner to the Kroger where you do your grocery shopping. When you're driving your car filled with much-loved children on your way to home school co-op, little babies are being ripped apart inside the brick wall of that building on your left three buildings back from the stop light.
Remember? Your God is a Father to the fatherless.
India's child murders are sex-specific. So many of her little girls have been killed that for every 1,000 boys under age six, there are only 916 girls. Most of them are cut apart while in their mother's womb. Some make it to birth, though, and are starved to death. Little baby girls with toothpicks for arms and everyone knows why...In response to this demographic nightmare, India has not outlawed infant murder. Rather, authorities have made it a crime to reveal the sex of an unborn child. And yet the ratio of girls to boys continues to climb boyward with no end in sight.
At least in America our infant murders aren't usually for the purpose of sex selection. Simple convenience is such a superior motive for the murder of one's own flesh and blood.
Is there anyone who belongs to Jesus who will feed or adopt these little girls? Any civil magistrate who will tie our nation's aid to the end of the holocaust of the Jews?
Errr, scratch that: I meant the holocaust of the babies.
