“There are no unwanted children, just unfound families.” –The National Adoption Center

In honor of Sanctity of Human Life Sunday my pastor gave an amazing sermon about the millions of innocent children, made in the image of God, who have been aborted in America. During this sermon my pastor made a point that I had never heard in relation to abortion that I wanted to share.

Artists take great pride in their work. They call their finished pieces a masterpiece! But what if someone decided, while the artist was working, to ruin the artwork? It would be an outrage! People would ask, “How dare someone disrupt the making of a masterpiece?”

We should feel this outrage… 3,500 times a day.

God knit each of us together in our mother’s womb. We are fearfully and wonderfully made. Human life is God’s masterpiece. Why are we not asking, “How dare someone try to disrupt His beautiful work?” There is nothing more precious or more perfect or more beautiful than an innocent child, whether in the womb or not.

Following the sermon today my pastor had all of the children (from nursery and children’s church) join the congregation in singing, “Jesus Loves Me.” It was so beautiful and so perfect and so appropriate.
