“This year marks 48 years since the Supreme Court declared abortion to be a fundamental right. Abortion was the leading cause of death worldwide in 2018, with 42 million victims. Last year an estimated 900,000 babies in the U.S. were electively aborted, which is more than the total American casualties in the two World Wars and the Vietnam War combined. In the U.S., 90 percent of preborn humans diagnosed with Down syndrome are terminated.”
“A great question deep in the hearts of many Christian parents is why some children bloom quickly when they profess faith while others take much longer. Why is it that some seem to burst into life while others seem to drag?”
“If left untended, bitterness will grow and grow and grow, spreading out its leaves, shooting out roots and vines that dig deep and wrap tightly. The only way to keep yourself free from its insidious spread is to work at regular eradication. Yank those roots up as often as possible. Check for new sources growth and weed it out. Open your Bible each morning with desperation, confess every self-serving thought and longing for vengeance. Repent every time you revisit those conversations. Resist the temptation to rewrite and rehearse the script. Ask the Spirit to mold your heart, bend it towards Christlikeness and away from self-pity or pride.”
“You have great power in your tongue and in your typing to be an instrument of encouragement or discouragement.”
