Today my sermon was on the subject of protection of babies in the womb, the elderly, the infirm, and those who might need special attention in one way or another. In our "use and toss" society we seem to only live for the moment. Our God and Father Yahweh of the Bible desires for us to live each moment as if eternity depends upon it. We looked at the  OT passage where Moses is giving the people the opportunity to choose life and live. In other words, in this beautiful Emerald coast shore of Destin and Ft. Walton Beach, we must learn from the examples in the Bible and actually obey God through His Word.

One of the verses uses the phrase "Choose Life", and that same phrase is displayed on special license plates in Florida. I read a story where a lady saw the plate in a parking lot and the "Choose Life" wording caused her to reconsider her planned abortion. We would call that occurrence  a divine appointment. So really the special plate is worth the extra cost when it helps someone to understand the value of a human life.

I hope you will take the time today to pray for the babies in the womb, the afflicted, and especially the caregivers of those in need of extra help or assistance. Remember the Proverb, "Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a shame to any people."  Pray for our nation.

Friend, our hope, as the late Chip Dorton used to sing, is "In Christ Alone". pm
